Outside Interests

Isabelle loves to spend time with family and friends, and get active via the gym, yoga, sport and as many other ways as possible. Otherwise, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, keeping up her Spanish, enjoying art and literature, and, more often than not, dreaming about her next travel adventure.
