My Photo


  • Website:


I was born in Seoul, South Korea, adopted at the age of 6 months and raised in the Midwest. My husband and I are parents to a daughter by birth and a son, born in South Korea, who is adopted. My husband and I met out east while I was working and living in NYC. I am a licensed Elementary & Middle School Mathematics teacher.

I enjoy reading, writing and talking (and talking, and talking!) about most everything, but am especially passionate about Adoption, Korea, Education (esp. Mathematics & Literacy), Running, Motherhood, Family, Friendship, Marriage, Women & Children's Issues, Social Justice, Politics and Faith.
