About Me


To experience as much as possible


My friends would probably say that I am sometimes funny, a good listener, generous, and loyal. They would say it takes me a while to warm up but once I do, I'm a great friend.


I enjoy learning and experiencing new things. I look for opportunities that I have not experienced yet. My friends and family keep me going. I generally spend my time hanging out with friends and doing crafty things (jewelry, painting, puzzles, crocheting). I love group sports but haven't found any yet that I want to participate in. I enjoy floating, swimming, fishing, skiing, camping, and playing field hockey. I love different cultures and love to get tastes of them whenever I can. I enjoy reading nonfiction although I do enjoy my psychological mystery books. I love being in the mountains and surrounded by nature. Then again, the ocean is equally appealing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My job as a counselor constantly leaves me awestruck. The issues that are presented to me on a daily basis are shocking.

I have also lived abroad as a child and those experiences in Asia have changed me (for the better).

I was in a human stampede when I was young and it is amazing how it still affects me. To this day, I hate crowds.
