For our FIFTH refrigerator tour, I’m taking you to sunny Cali. Although I have nothing against the West coast, my husband and I are currently campaigning for this one and her husband to move to NY… I’ll keep you updated.
Occupation: HR Payroll Specialist for a Human Rights non-profit
Location: Orange, CA
- She’s down to earth
- She’s smart
- She’s a good friend
- She’s got a fun style

If you weren’t working at the job you have now, what would you want to do?
I have a few “dream” careers, but right now, I’d love to be a green architect. Designing really cool buildings with the least environmental impact is something that is really fascinating to me!
Name your favorite five things about where you live:
- Being walking/riding distance to great restaurants and coffee shops
Name your least favorite five things about where you live:
- I’ll never be able to buy a house here
- It lacks diversity in every aspect
- It’s almost too convenient (everything is just a 10 minute drive away)
- Suburbia – I’d much rather live in a city!
- Many of my peers lack ambition
What are the biggest challenges in your life right now?
My job is really challenging right now. It’s taking all of my mental energy. I can’t seem to find time for creativity or even finding a new job! I travel a lot for my job so getting into a healthy cooking and exercise routine has been very challenging!
What do your weekdays look like?
These days, it’s rolling out of bed, making coffee and jumping online right before my 6:00 meetings start with my east coast colleagues. I camp out in my home office, usually lose track of time and rush to make myself presentable before my husband gets home from work.
What do your weekends look like?
Trying to sleep in, taking extra time to make a delicious cup of coffee, reading for at least 30 minutes on my dreamy porch and binge watching Gossip Girl on Netflix. Can you tell I’m an introvert?
Tell me about your refrigerator:
It came with our rental and it’s probably really old. I can never seem to get the right temperature. Why are my eggs sometimes frozen!?
What does your refrigerator say about you?
I think it says I don’t cook enough, but we at least try to eat healthy.
Name five things that are always in your refrigerator (or that would be if you could keep up):
- La Croix
- Green Peppers
Name your favorite five things to eat:
- Brussels Sprouts
- Pad See Ew (Thai noodle dish)
Thank you SO much Jess for opening up your refrigerator to us!
