About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living simply, building relationships and experiences

ABOUT ME

Avid volunteer seeking to change her world and herself for the better. I am vegan, I love cooking, talking, learning, eating, baking, singing karaoke, and all things musical and genuine.

I judge, and I am learning to not judge as much.
I am hopelessly optimistic and trusting.

Come talk to me about how you want to change the world and your world.

PHILOSOPHY

Life's purpose is to find your gift and give it away.
