For me life is about sharing: sharing a story, a smile, sharing yourself, your home, your food, your ideas.
I feel empowered when the power of sharing impacts someone, when I help other people achieve their dreams, and I feel empowered when I’m dancing, always when I’m dancing.
I believe in living a mindful life that integrates conscious consumerism, health and wellness, nutrition, plant-based yumminess, yoga and stretching and general body movement, spirituality, writing, hiking, being outside, live music, exploration, the occasional craft beer and spontaneous shenanigans.
I graduated from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication with a degree in Print/Online Journalism. I double majored in Creative Writing with a poetry focus. While in college I interned as a reporter for a weekly human interest newspaper and a monthly human interest magazine. I worked as a science reporter and maintained a music blog. After college I freelanced as a beat reporter for local newspapers. Along the way I’ve learned copy editing skills, HTML, SEO, how to tell a story in 140 words and how to communicate with small town mayors.
Aside from journalism I’ve worked seasonal jobs at outdoor stores, music festivals, catering companies, yoga centers, and farms.
But mainly I’ve been traveling. Being on the road helped me find myself and learn what I really love and want out of life.
For now that means planting roots in a cozy North Carolina town.
I hope the musings on my blog encourage you, inspire you, give you a slice of life from a different perspective, or just simply add some sunshine to your day.
With love, flowers, and grace,
