I am a long-time San Francisco Bay Area resident, but I grew up in the Midwest with all the joy and resourcefulness of my grandmother’s “don’t be lazy” admonitions. My hobbies include creation of textile art, food and cocktails, halloween costumes, and community with friends. My 2 cats happily take up any excess attention that my 3 kids no longer require, and I am currently working on a new consumer health start-up for adults with cognitive decline.
