I think Albuquerque has a lot to offer. It’s such a picturesque city with the backdrop of the Sandia Mountains. The diversity here is reminiscent of my hometown New York City but the climate in Albuquerque is definitely a welcomed change compared to the Northeast!

Dr. Clavell lives in Albuquerque with her husband, 4 year old son and one year old identical twin boys.

Traveling, cooking, learning languages, crocheting, interior design, DIY projects and spending time with my family
