Originally from Rhode Island, USA I have spent a great deal of my grown up life in Boston, MA, USA working in academics. That being said, I managed to live and work in several different countries along the way. I now live in the United Arab Emirates with my family, and when I am not in the office (be it in person or virtual!) I am in the midst of planning recipes, dreaming up our next adventure somewhere out there in the world, or figuring out how to parent. I realized very early on that good quality dark chocolate fixes almost all problems, complaining doesn’t really solve any problems, and the world is a better place when you surround yourself with amazing people.
