I am an American by birth, a nomad by nature and I have called Dubai home for the last nine years. I love to create recipes that are healthy and accommodate special diets. As a former Peace Corps Volunteer I have a passion for culture and travel, I love exploring the world with the added challenge of three children. I am an avid reader, humanitarian and writer. I try each day to do yoga, teach my children to be nice, empathetic people, and to write at least a little bit.
