Who am I? A third-generation Washingtonian; mom to a hilarious toddler; dedicated 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 and organizational learning for the USAID Bureau for Food Security. In my free time (of which I have precious little since becoming a mom), I sing with the National Philharmonic Chorale, read novels, write songs and poems, contribute to parenting communities, and spend time on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Of course, those are just the basics.
