I have always wanted to help people in some capacity.
I like to try new experiences, spend time with my family, hike, kayak, be near water and travel. I really enjoy painting or working on creative outlets such as photography, crafts or writing. I have lived in Central New York my entire life and am an avid Syracuse fan. Go Orange!
I focus on gratitude and color a picture on my calming app every morning.
I have never read a book more than once but I love to read.
Clear Path for Veteran's is a phenomenal organization that helps veteran's on many levels. I also support ASPCA because I love animals.
Being in the outdoors, getting a massage, being with family and/or friends and either painting or crafts.
I have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Marley. I have many Marley stories! We call her Marley the Menace sometimes!
