a personal blog currently focused on detailing my life in Los Angeles. Formerly: a blog focused on sharing my public health practicum in Bogota, Colombia.

Public health graduate. Sexual health educator. Indignation Coordinator. Fancy granola. Optimist. Immigrant. Sex-positive feminist. Word lover. Self-entertainer. Cornucopia of tangential comments. Dessert aficionado. Future faerie jobmother. OneNote evangelist. Коренная москвичка.

Due to pressure from friends and family, I’ve switched from email updates to a blog format.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be an East Coaster in Los Angeles, attend Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, travel to Colombia (not to be confused with Columbia), work in sexual and reproductive health, or evaluate a program, welcome, dear reader.

Other quirks and joys of life you’ll read about include adjusting to life in Los Angeles, my attempts at cultivating personal wealth, reflections on being an eater who dislikes cooking, other people’s stories, dessert withdrawal, the nostalgia evoked by traveling, the occasional book review, and other idiosyncrasies.
