About Me


Live. Love. and Laugh with reckless abandon.


I am a little explorer by nature so anything different, hidden, or new attracts me. I deeply value nature and animals so respecting them and their territory is important to me. I try to be positive and open-minded. My friends say that I'm bubbly and people I've met for a short period have always told me to never stop smiling the way I do.

I continuously strive to be minimalistic in possessions (more so forced to be due to traveling). I'm not afraid to speak up when it comes to things I am passionate about, but I'm also open to talking it out with the ways we do things differently as a part of learning about each other. There is no right or wrong and there is always room for learning and changing for the better in all of us.

I'm not the type that sits still when I'm out and about. I love going on long walks and soaking in my surroundings. When I relax, it's usually when I'm alone and sleeping or sitting on a couch with an amazing cup of tea. My typical weekend includes a rock climbing trip or backpacking through the wilderness


Live. Love. and Laugh with reckless abandon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've eaten snake.
I ran a half marathon.
I raced on Nurburgring in Germany.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach without knowing that I'm teaching. I learn every second I engage others. I share if you're willing to take. However, I think the best thing I can do is evoke inspiration in people to do what they love to do.

I can teach you how to read financial statements...
