Before starting The Californienne, I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in French. I entered the workforce feeling uninspired, so I took some time to travel.

After meeting new, diverse people and sharing experiences, I realized there is a dialog to be had about globalized lifestyle content. My goal for this blog is to provide a platform for women to connect on an international scale and share the best parts of their lives.

I love creative- think blogging, photography and design- with an analytical twist. Running The Californienne is truly a labor of love and has been a long time coming.

I’ve previously held positions as an Asst. Conservation Biologist, Marketer, and Columnist. Currently, I am teaching a high school English classes in France until summer 2018.
