Isabel is originally from Germany and moved to the US 10 years ago.
All of her family (including one sister, three brothers, nephews, parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents) is still living overseas which makes for a great intercultural experience. Besides the distance, we are very close with her family and talk to them on a regular basis via skype.
Isabel is self-employed as a sociologist, filmmaker, and public speaker and works mostly from home which allows for a more flexible schedule overall. We give our best to speak German and English at our home (occasionally ASL on beginner level).
