About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to live every moment to the fullest and surround myself with good people!

ABOUT ME

I'm just a girl traveling the world seeking adventure! I grew up in Maryland, and started working on farms when I 17. I love being outside and doing physical work. The past 2 winters I spent a couple of months in hawaii working on a citrus/coffee/bee farm, and I fell in love with the big island! I met many incredible people, and may return there soon, hopefully to live. In the meantime I'm exploring new zealand, its always been a dream to come here!

PHILOSOPHY

Seeking beauty wherever I go and in everyone I meet. Spreading positive optimistic energy.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Swimming over a mile across Kealakekua bay alongside a huge pod of dolphins, then snorkeling around the point amidst thousands of colorful fish and underwater sea arches, jumping out and hiking 2 miles up a ridiculously steep trail with burning hot lava rock in nothing but my swim suit and bare feet, hitch hiking back to the car, then immediately going to get burgers and beer! amazing day.
