She moved to the Washington D.C. area from San Diego in 2002, where she studied International Affairs, Art History, and International Media at The George Washington University’s Elliott School.

She is a military sister and a supporter of military families and first responders. Having lost her grandmother to Ovarian Cancer, she has become a champion for awareness of the disease and works closely with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance, hosting their annual D.C. fundraisers. One of her greatest joys is traveling, and when she’s not visiting her family on the West Coast, she and her best friend Lindsey are cashing in airline miles as they fly their way to their goal of seeing all seven continents by 2023.

The question has been raised, can your pets get COVID-19 and can they transmit it to you.
