I am a first-generation Japanese American. I came to Keene, New Hampshire, to experience life in America and to attend college in 1993. After graduating from Keene State College, I decided to stay and continue my education and career here in America. Though I don't love cold temperatures in the winter, I love everything else about nature in New Hampshire, including beautiful snow!
I enjoy walking, hiking, bicycling, and paddle boarding. I also enjoy reading books, drinking hot tea, and relaxing at home. I practice finding small joy and beauty in everyday life, and my two cats help me with it!
