“I have lived in many cities in my life and I am happy to call the DMV area my home. I love the richness here including the cultural diversity and I appreciate that the city and nature are one. I have 2 young children who keep us busy and their red hair is a true testament to recessive genes. We hope to find some answers in our ancestry and plan some trips to find their redheaded roots! I love spending time with my family and exploring the world with my kids including parks, trails, museums, and local establishments.”
