More about the Neighborhood
Takoma: Not To Be Confused With Takoma Park, MD

You can say a lot of things about Takoma. You can call it "eclectic," a catch-all for the liberal, vegan-friendly vibe that persists there; Takoma is beloved by its residents, many neighbors for decades and others part of an influx of young, first-time home buyers. They praise the community spirit and proximity to the District's hot spots, even if the restaurant and retail scene is moving along a bit slowly.

The "Delightful Shade" of Northwest
Takoma sits at the northeastern tip of the District, with Eastern Avenue separating it from Maryland. To the west, Georgia Avenue separates it from Rock Creek Park, and somewhere between Tuckerman and Van Buren Streets marks Takoma's southern border.

Established in 1883, Takoma was the first railroad suburb of the city, promoted as having "no malaria," "pure air," and "delightful shade." The neighborhood originally stretched across the state line, and even after the Maryland General Assembly incorporated Takoma Park in 1890, the two communities continued to share a name and a common identity. After the arrival of the Seventh Day Adventists in 1903, businesses were closed on Sundays and alcohol sales were prohibited. The teetotaling, community activism, and vegetarianism popularized by the Adventists all linger in Takoma today.

About Me
We are a family of 4 living in a large renovated Victorian home on the border of Washington, DC, and MD. My husband and I both work in education. I run a global citizenship program for a network of public charter schools. We have a large garden and live close to a sweet library where we reserve books for us and our 9 and 11 year old to read, making many trips weekly to pick them up. I have lived in the Middle East and in Spain and as a family, we've travelled to Israel and Italy. I completed a PhD in Political Science writing about social movements and then spent 10 years at the U.S. State Department working on human rights policy and grantmaking to activists around the world. We love to meet new people from different places. My kids have studied two other languages and like to learn new words in others.
