I was born and grew up in Shizuoka, Japan. I've lived in many places after my college: Tokyo, Okinawa, England, Alaska, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Navajo Reservation before finally settling in Beaverton, OR in 2012 to study for my PhD. I live with Sean, my husband of 20 years who is a USAF retiree, a retired show dog Shiba Inu, and the family of 3 Maine Coon cats. We enjoy RV traveling in our 42-ft motorhome with all our pets.
