Besides family, travel is what gives meaning and purpose in my life. I've always loved going somewhere, starting when my family and I went to Disneyland when I was five years old. While I initially believed that I needed to find something "suitable" for a career and went into education, I finally had the opportunity to follow my passion and work in travel.
Today, I primarily as a travel advisor, but I never miss a chance to write, blog and photograph my adventures around the world. After several iterations, my blog is now called "The Sansei Traveler," which reflects both my Japanese American heritage and my wanderlust.
When I'm not on the road, I spend time at home in the Colorado foothills with my husband/frequent travel companion and two teenage daughters/sometime travel companions. I love to run, do Peloton workouts, hike, ski, cook, read, knit, practice yoga and follow my Bay Area sports teams.
