I love reading and strive to read as much as I can. The Hunger Games is my favorite books series, with Harry Potter coming in as a close second. I have a moderate obsession with anything true crime. I am an enthusiast of random facts. I have a passion for adventure and am always wanting to plan my next trip, even if it’s just to my hometown.

Education was something that was incredibly important to my Mom. I watched her begin her college journey with three children ages 5 and under. She worked incredibly hard through college while raising her children and later a terminal cancer diagnosis. Watching her showed me that no one’s college journey is exactly the same. I further witnessed this with my own journey, my husband’s, and my friends’. Not one of us had a ‘typical’ journey. It’s important to remember that life throws obstacles that change the course of our paths. Your college journey is yours; no matter what path it takes.
