I have been a Californian since I moved to the Bay Area from Seoul when I was 7 years old. I spent most of my childhood in the South Bay and my adulthood in San Francisco, where I met my husband – a rare third generation San Franciscan!  I also spent some time in SoCal for work and to obtain my MBA, but I realized I’m a NorCal person at heart.

Soon after our first son was born, my husband and I joined the mass exodus and decided to leave the city for a community with great schools, warmer weather and a short commute back to San Francisco. We found that in Orinda in 2008. Since then, we’ve been active in the schools and sports programs, volunteering and becoming an active member of the Lamorinda community.
