About Me


Smile, laugh, see, learn, love :)


I am a very happy outgoing person. My favorite thing in the world is meeting new people. I feed off of the energy that I get from others. Awesomeness breads more awesomeness!


"And each person I encountered, I couldn't wait to meet.
I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health.
I said there is nothing I can do for you you can't do for yourself.
He said Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that would help.
So I sat with him a while and then I asked him how he felt.
He said, I think I'm cured. No, in fact, I'm sure.
Thank you Stranger, for your therapeutic smile."
