About Me


To see the world though love, laughter and joy!!


I am a never-met-a-stranger kind of girl. I love to make new friends, have adventures, climb mountains, lay on beaches, eat crazy foods, speak other languages (even when poorly), and above all try to spread some peace and love around the world. I have spent the last 10 years working back and forth between Sub-Saharan Africa and NYC.


"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good women to do nothing".
