I'm passionate about supporting personal growth, healing, and self-awareness.
I love the outdoors, reading, staying active, and spending time with family, friends and my dogs!
Severe Mercy because it captures the power of love and the profound nature of grief and loss.
Sea Legacy—I am inspired by the work they due to support awareness and preservation of the Arctic.
I have two dogs! I set a cupcake on my table (bright pink frosting) so I wouldn’t forget to bring it to work for my colleague's Birthday, and when I came back to the kitchen, after showering, there was a bite out of the top of the cupcake. When I looked around in an attempt to figure out what had happened, I saw my French Bulldog, Lucy, sleeping on the couch with bright pink frosting all over her face!
