About Our New Yorker


Hi! Welcome! I am Lisa, a twenty-four year old native Californian living in the Big Apple. I work with some of our most energetic and rambunctious tiny humans in the world as a public charter school teacher in Brooklyn. I went to a small liberal arts college in the Midwest and graduated with a triple-major in politics, international relations, and women’s studies. Clearly, I was (and still am!) a nerd  😉 Although I had absolutely no intention of moving to NYC after college, I was placed here through Teach For America and decided to stay after my two year commitment.

During my free time, I love utilizing my ClassPass membership to workout, shopping way too much, watching an absolutely embarrassing amount of reality TV shows (no, seriously), cooking international cuisine, geeking out over current events (old habits die hard!), hanging out with friends and my incredible boyfriend, John, and discovering little bits and pieces about the beloved city that I now officially call home.


It is my intention to build this blog into a lifestyle site, where I (along with my amazing guest bloggers!) share our shopping, food, travel, fitness, and general life adventures with all of you. Thank you, truly, for taking the time out of your day to stop by and I hope you will continue to support in the years to come!
