About Me


Ich will mein deutsch verbessern und damit versuchen Erdnussbutter in deutschen Aldis zu vermarkten


I am a nice girl from the west coast, Seattle to be exact. You can take the girl out of Seattle but you can't take the "seattleness" out of the girl. or something like that. I can be kind of reserved, but it depends a lot on the situation, how comfortable I am with people. and all of the travelling/moving around I have done has made me more outgoing over time!

The adventure continues; moving to Madrid Fall 2014 to work as an English teaching assistant. :-)
