About Me

I’m a displaced northerner confronting the daily challenges of maintaining a work-life balance as a wife and mom. Originally from NJ, I’ve lived in Baltimore, Bangladesh, Taiwan, and Los Angeles, but now I call North Carolina home. I am actually doing something with my MA in East Asian Studies (gasp!) and work as a program coordinator for China-related projects (yes, I had to learn Chinese, it is not my native language).

When I’m not cooking dinner or changing diapers, I enjoy…

  • BBC crime series
  • Yoga
  • Travel
  • Dunkin’ Donuts (I am from NJ…)
  • Short stories
  • Painting
  • Party-planning
  • Church
  • Thrift stores

Things that surprised me when I moved to North Carolina include its:

  • Sugar levels in sweet tea
  • Friendliness
  • Accents
  • Ethnic diversity
  • Similarity to NJ suburbia
  • History of UNC-Duke basketball rivalry
