For the past 15 years she has resided in the very non-exotic locale of Bloomington, IL. There she shares a cozy apartment with her husband Jon and works as an Academic Advisor. While she still enjoys travels to visit friends and family, meditation and healing are the main focus of her current exploration and discoveries. She also enjoys creative cooking, reading, naps, walks, scrabble, and restorative yoga, as well as sharing tea, good meals, and good conversation. ¡Se habla español!
