Hi. My name is Theresa.
I am an expat, logistician, traveler, writer, paper crafter, lover of books and coffee, and occasionally doting mother. I am occasionally foul-mouthed, not nearly as diplomatic as my professional would imply, and fiercely feminist.
The opinions expressed here on SVO are my own and do not reflect the opinions of the Department of State or the USG.
While I frequently link to services and products I like, I receive no renumeration, financial or otherwise, for doing so.
