I grew up in Huntington Beach, California and lived with my parents my entire life until I turned 27 and moved all the way across the world to Sydney to be with my Aussie pilot boyfriend.
I never had a roommate, never moved away to college, never paid a gas or electricity bill… ever… so logically the next step was to jump right into living with a boy on the other side of the world, right?
I have a Masters Degree in clinical psychology and have dabbled in various jobs over the years including counseling/therapy, project and account management, web and software development and social media.
I now have an awesome job as a research manager in a market research and technology company and I know this is where I belong. I miss my family and friends more than you can imagine. My niece and nephews are my favorite little people in the whole world. I love wine and probably drink too much of it.
Organising makes me REALLY happy. No one can pronounce my name (it’s Elsha by the way). I love traveling and I’ve been to every continent except Antarctica. I’m a master packer and can fit anything into a suitcase including a Kitchenaid mixer, a food processor and 30 glass jars (yes, I once packed 30 glass jars in a suitcase). I make a mean guacamole and during the summer I can be found sipping sangria in the warm Australian sun.
I’m delighted to report that it all worked out, we were married in August 2010 and have two beautiful sons.
