One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's really difficult to pick one thing. I am rich with joyful and amazing experiences, so much so I often find myself holding back while sharing.

I promise there's plenty to talk about.

I saw the Northern Lights!!! While camping. In Wisconsin! I just looked up and there they were! Complete and total magic!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach:
-camera stuff
-medical stuff
-random facts about cool stuff

Learn:
- boats - I know nothing about boats. Honestly they kind of scare me and I kind of feel like I need to get over that.

Share:
I have had a very amazing time so far on this earth and actively practice acts of gratitude at every opportunity. In my field of work I see many miracles and many tragic endings. It is easy to get lost in surviving.

Im try just trying to get a slice of this crazy life!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Most likely it would be small gems of joyful things to help you on your own journey. I love to bring good connection and enthusiasm to the table! If you are planning a trip or have a big goal, I want to hear about it! I will be excited with you!

Life is short. I'm pumped to be alive and be here on this earth!
