I am a lover of all things beautiful, and all things fresh….. ideas, dreams, flowers, food, design, fashion and people. Most who know me well know that I have thought many times about throwing in my day job and opening a cuban sandwich shop, a fish taco truck, a paella + tango joint, a juice bar and on and on depending on the season and the favorite flavor that lingers on my tongue at any moment. Luckily, I still maintain my dual jobs and cook and create for friends and family for fun mostly all of the time.
My day job happens to be a very stressful one as a social worker (no longer in an emergency room) but in a pediatric hospital nevertheless; so the need to un-do the day is an essential ingredient in my continued happiness and ability to thrive. I can often be found running the edges of Lake Washington in Seattle within seconds of landing at my doorstep following a day at the hospital, but later, can always be found in my lovely little kitchen in Madison Park that I refer to as Casa Alta.
