Hi everyone! Thank you for checking out our blog!  I was born in raised in Columbus, Ohio and graduated from Ohio University with a degree in Accounting and Business Pre-Law.  My first “real” job was located in the Netherlands, where I moved right after graduation.

Over the past year and a half I have moved to a new country, moved in with my long-distance boyfriend, started my first “real” job, bought a home, began learning a new language, made some great new friends, traveled Europe, switched careers, and realized life after college really isn’t that bad after all.
