At 19 I took my first solo backpacking trip through Southeast Asia. After that incredible four months, I knew that the wanderlust bug had taken root, but I didn’t quite have the courage to pack up everything. At age 22, I decided I wasn’t quite ready to enter the life of cubicles and computers and so I packed my backpack, left my cute little apartment and closet full of clothes, and have not looked back since. My travels led me to accept a teaching position in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This has helped me realize that there are opportunities everywhere if you are willing to accept them. I am constantly brainstorming, dreaming, and researching new ways to get out into the world and experience more of life. Travel is my greatest passion & my bucket list is long and ever-growing.
