When I was nothing but a 19 year old mid-western girl, I longed to see the ocean, then I finally had the chance. That had sparked my interest to visit all three oceans that our great country is bordered by. I had accomplished that by the age of 22, so the next goal that I had set my sights on was to visit all 50 states. Originally I wanted to finish this by 30 years old… but better late than never!
My other interests include photography with an interest in astro and time-lapse.

Memorable Travel Experience(s)
In 2016 I took an almost 4,000 mile solo road trip from St. Louis, Missouri, through 13 states of New England. At first, it was an intimidating feat for a solo female, however, that trip was the tipping point and such a confidence builder for me and my travels.
Camping in Valley of the Gods, Utah under the GORGEOUS night sky.
Riding the Durango-Silverton narrow gauge railroad in Colorado.
A 12 day international trip to visit Wales and Ireland in 2015.
Flying around Mnt. Denali in Alaska and watching a glacier calve in Kenai Fjord National Park. (Because who can limit their experiences to just 4... right?)
