A week ago, I had the privilege of traveling to San Francisco for my job. The reason for the travel? Several conferences were being held simultaneously for the pharmaceutical, biotech, and investing industries.

  1. Jennifer, I lived in San Francisco for a year and still have dear friends there. Your photojournal brought back all kinds of memories. Thank you! XOXO

  2. So glad you loved SF! I love nearby, and what I love most lately is going to the edges of the city- the beach, hiking, biking of the Gokden Gate and exploring the Marin area. So much to see and do there.
