I have had family ties in South Florida since the 1990s and moved to Miami myself in 2001. I am the mother of three boys and love sharing my experiences of our great city with residents and visitors alike.


I have served as the About.com Guide to Miami since 2002, sharing my expertise on Miami culture, events, attractions and politics. My experience in our city as a visitor, resident and mother provides me with a diverse perspective that I strive to share with you on a regular basis.


I earned a BS in Physics from the Johns Hopkins University.

I'll bring you great new feature articles each week as we explore Miami-Dade County together. I'll help you find your way around whether you're a longtime South Floridian, a new resident, considering making Miami your home or just visiting for a couple of days.

If you'd like to respond to one of my blog posts, you may do so using the "comments" link at the bottom of each post. You may post anonymously using only a first name or nickname if you like.

If you have a specific question about Miami, please post it in the About Miami Forum. I check the forum regularly and we have many regular readers who may be able to assist you.
