I am, in no particular order, … a friend, a wife, a grad student, a mom, and a truth teller. That last one doesn’t always go over well with some, but a zebra can’t and shouldn’t change her stripes. Instead, I embrace them! I love to learn new things and challenge myself. I love to laugh out loud, sing at the top of my lungs (when I’m alone) and dance. I believe in really connecting with people. I believe in standing up and speaking up when there is injustice. I believe in finding joy and purpose in all things. I believe in trying to reach out to others and letting them know they matter. I’m passionate about many things, most importantly, about growing and being real.
