About Me

49 years young and after almost 30 years as a hairdresser I'm looking to change careers. Life is about the people you meet and continued opportunities for personal growth and so I'm looking forward to my new paths in life. I'm a nature and bird enthusiasts who's interested in the outdoors, photography, continually learning, art, movies, travel, different cultures, volunteering, drawing, health and wellness, spiritual pursuits, yoga, vegetarian cooking , astrology and looking for ways to connect with people in this life. I'm an eternal optimist with a rich curiosity.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I volunteered for 6 years with a Burmese refugee family of 6 that relocated from a Thailand Refugee camp to Seattle. They arrived here malnourished, without any knowledge of the English language or U.S customs, lifestyle and cultures. It was a incredibly difficult and rewarding time in my life and an amazing eye opening experience. I definitely learned a lot from the family and the experience itself.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love all of those. I love to learn, share and teach in a way that helps people to feel inspired. We all have an opportunity to do this for each other everyday.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My innate curiosity, optimism, life experience and sense of adventure.
