About Me

FUN!!!!!

My name can be pronounced "Kit" like Kit-Kats ;)

I'm in love with nature, culture, language, and people. So really I'm in love with life and everything it has to offer.

I have copious amount of energy. I am naturally interested in so many areas that you could say I am a woman of "tricks of all trades." I never seem to run out of subjects to talk about. A true extrovert at its best! I always love being around people and meeting new people--it's actually a hobby of mine.

I am a biomedical engineer by training, however, recently my company got bought out and I'm on a new path in my life to venture out on the world. My engineering career is short lived, 5 years to be exact. I don't regret it, but I am in a new phase of my life with lots of new opportunities that are being presented to me.

Which brings me to my next topic, traveling. I want to travel the world and I am open to suggestions where to go next.. ALWAYS.

I am considering teaching English abroad while doing some missionary work. It is a passion of mine to help people and to be a voice in a crowd.

WITH THAT BEING SAID... I moved to Playa del Carmen. So lets start and make some new friendships. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

When it comes to music . . this is hard because I listen to everything. I mean literally everything, I like to give music an opportunity to be heard before deciding if I like it or just not to my liking.

Movies: Office Space, Passengers, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, God's Not Dead, Marvel movies, Intersteller, Zootopia, How to Train Your Dragon, Finding Nemo, Despicable Me, Inception, The Help, Imitation Game, 12 Years Slave, Into the Wild, etc.. need I say more?! I love movies... :P

Books: Poisonwood Bible, Into the Wild, The Giver, Life of Pi, Life Changing Habits of Tiding Up, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, I Could Do Anything if I Knew What it Was, The String Theory, The Notebook, The Great Gatsby, The Bible.. etc.. I like to read mostly non-fiction books.
