Who am I? A third-generation Washingtonian; new mom to a beautiful little girl; passionate alum of Duke, Tufts, and Stone Ridge; and that person who photographs the insect and sets it free outside rather than squishing it. By day, I manage knowledge-sharing activities for the USAID Bureau for Food Security and strive to make food safety a priority in international development. In my free time (of which I have precious little since having a baby), I sing with the National Philharmonic Chorale, read novels, write songs, contribute to parenting communities, and spend time on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Of course, those are just the basics.
