    About Me

    Born and raised in upstate New York. Traveled to Washington state for college and decided to stay for a decade.  If you've never been to the Pacific Northwest add it to your list of places to go! Moved to New Hampshire, I guess I wanted to experience more of small town life;) Moved to North Carolina summer of 2002!

    Hobbies 

    • Reading - Anything I can put my hands on
    • My Job...passionate about learning
    • Walking - need it because of the next one
    • Eating Chocolate! (Rocky Mountain milk chocolate candy bar & Ghirardelli dark chocolate, caramel and sea salt are my favorites)
    • Travel

    Each year I try to visit at least one new place.  There is no place like home, but the experiences you gain through travel is addicting.
