Favorite things about I AM MODERN: Always entertaining, and occasionally provocative - I love the broad spectrum of issues that I AM MODERN covers. From family deals to fashion, there’s something for everyone in every issue. As a working mom, it keeps me up to date with everything I need for my career and family fun!
Favorite restaurant: For a casual family meal, we love to go to Blue Ridge Grill in Brambleton, where they always have exceptional service and yummy food! On our date nights, my husband and I pick somewhere like Tuscarora Mill or Lightfoot in downtown Leesburg. There are too many great options to pick just one!
Favorite place to hang out: During the warmer months, I love to sip cocktails on a patio, so I can partake in one of my favorite activities – people watching! But during those brutal winter months, you’ll find me nestled in a bookstore or curled up on the couch with my favorite little people…
I'm just a girl from Vermont, trying to navigate my way through the occasionally overwhelming lifestyle of a modern working mom. I met my British husband the "old fashioned" way - offline, in the service, and in another country after returning from a war. After years in the Army, we've finally settled in Leesburg, VA - and we're in love with the people we've met here. We have two brilliant and beautiful kids, who are the light of my life.

Traveled cities: I’ve been fortunate to have traveled quite a bit in Europe, Africa and the US. One of my favorite cities to visit was probably Rome because of the rich history. And the delicious Italian cuisine didn’t hurt.
