Background ► I grew up in the Seattle area, in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I also spent about six years living in Germany, and speak German fairly well. In 2011 I moved to London, where I met my husband the following year. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually at the gym, out for a nice meal, or curled up on the couch with a glass of wine.
