Life is full of love, excitement, lessons to be learned, and goals to achieve. Good things are happening. I’m making sure that I’m in a place in my life that allows me to be open to all the good that is around me.

In 2010, I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Health Promotions from Virginia Tech. I also have my undergraduate degree in English from Old Dominion University. In 2014, I began working for a company I’ve always dreamed of calling my home. I am an Associate Development Officer at Operation Smile. I believe that at our core, everyone being is the same – our wants, our desires, and our needs. Everyone should have the chance to chase their dreams. By sharing my successes and my stumbles along the way, I hope to gain confidence to keep going. I hope to create a community for myself and for others to just be.
We are all in this together.
Every year, on my birthday, I take time for myself to reflect and to dream. I use the time to set goals for the next year. They keep me focused. They keep me moving in a positive directions. When life gets out of balance, I go back to my goals. I ask myself What am I doing to make them happen? and How am I getting in my own way?
