I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
