Growing up, my family moved every couple of years for my parents’ work. I’ve lived in four states and three countries, and hope to add many more to that list! After spending a year teaching English in Spain, I relocated to the Netherlands to join the kimkim team.

How did you get involved in travel?

"My first international trip was at 3 years old; my family went to South Korea, and I haven't stopped traveling since."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"During a trip to Andalucia my final year of university, I went skiing in Granada in short sleeves and no coat! I couldn't believe I was in a place with palm trees, snow, AND views of the African continent, so I decided then and there to move to Spain. I then spent the next 12 months living in Barcelona and exploring the Costa Brava. "
