Career exploration, cooking, studying relationships, researching graduate programs, stretching, the occasional jog, warm weather, sunsets, friends, family, puppies, and traveling


I have a diverse work background making me what I believe to be an ideal candidate for many career opportunities. My ideal career would allow me to interact with many people and give me the opportunity to make a difference. I have a passion for event-planning, community relations, and human relationships. Being able to turn any of these passions into a career is what I hope to be able to do one day.
