Larissa considers herself lucky to have taught English in Japan, escaped a ferocious monkey in Thailand, studied archaeology in Egypt, and survived teaching high school history in the US. However, adopting her daughters from China has been her most rewarding experience. After growing up in the Midwest and spending her adult years in Georgia, she's back in Nagoya, Japan with her husband, daughters, the occasional fish, and Biscuit, a Cairn Terrier. Sometime in the spring of 2016, you'll see her and her family on House Hunters International. Look for the "Nagoya" episode!
