Current Rock of Residence:

St. John, USVI

Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:


Miss Ingrid is a stay-at-home mom, former St. John substitute teacher, sometime painter and writer, and St. John resident for the past four years. She has a love/hate relationship with the island but much like with men and dessert, she just can’t leave it alone. She’s currently learning how to drive her standard Jeep (aka “stick shift”), so when you see her, watch out – sometimes she’s in the right gear and other times…not so much. When she’s not out taking the island by Wrangler, you can find her at home laughing, holding, or cleaning up after her ever-moving, ever-growing 10 month old, Ivory. Miss Ingrid is also a musician on her rock and you can catch her weekly performances on beautiful St. John, USVI. For more information, check out her Facebook page.

My Baby was Bahn Here

Well, okay, not really bahn here (island speak for "born here"), but she's been here on St. John since she was 2 months old. Her mother - me - is a controlling Virgo and first-time mom. I must say that after watching so many pregnancy/new mother/chick-flick movies, my...
