I am originally from Seattle but have been living all over the past 10 years. The opportunity to live in a number of different places has impacted the way I view and interpret the world.
Most notably, living in New Orleans from 2010-2013 opened up my eyes to a whole host of issues I had not seriously thought about or confronted before.
These experiences led me to grad school where I earned a Master's Degree in Community and Regional Planning from the University of Oregon. After graduating I landed in Portland for two years working in transportation. I recently moved back to Seattle where I took a position with Community Transit in Snohomish County and am living in Northgate.
