Other (random) things about me:

  • My little brothers were born when I was in 9th grade & 11th grade…
    and I’m proud to say I named them both.
  • I used to “not go to school”  any time I had to do any kind of public speaking because I was terrified, couldn’t think, the words wouldn’t come out, and I would literally shake. People have said I should never share this, but I think this is absolutely what I should share- because I wasn’t comfortable public speaking until I was in my 30’s! We never know where this life journey will take us.
  • Bravest thing I ever did was bungee jump- but I had to be pushed. Hard.
  • I have always wanted to be a waitress- but I’m too terrified to do it because I can’t understand how you can manage trays/drinks AND walk. Totally mind boggling to me.
  • Favorite quote: We are all just walking each other home~ Ram Daas.
    Because we are.
