Hi, I’m Meche.

My boyfriend, Kay, and I live in the Barry Farm neighborhood of Ward 8, (just outside of Historic Anacostia). We share our home with Goose, our Red Nose Pitbull, and Murrion Purry (not to be confused with Mayor for Life, Marrion Barry), our cat – both of whom were adopted from the Washington Animal Rescue League.

I love all things DIY and HGTV, taking long walks at the Anacostia River Park with Goose & Kay, reading and trying new restaurants. For my ‘day job’ I work with City Chic Real Estate as a Realtor. I am a proud member of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals and am honored to serve as Vice President of r.e.e.l (river east emerging leaders).

The 3rd Thursday of every month you will find me at an East of the River Social Club event, meeting new neighbors and supporting local businesses.

Join me as I write about our life and adventures East of the River.
