A little more


I aspire to lead an eco-conscious, sustainable and mindful life and hope to inspire a similar mindset in others. I'm constantly absorbing audiobooks or podcasts about well-being, mindfulness, and culture and sharing what I've learned. Some of my favorite podcasts include The Happiness Lab, Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, Deliciously Ella, and A Bit of Optimism with Simon Sinek.

I'm a theatre kid at heart, and you can usually find me listening to a musical soundtrack, dancing around the living room, practicing yoga, watching shows about drag queens, or singing my heart out when I play the piano.

Also, I enjoy cooking & baking...I'm always trying new recipes

(and searching for the best chocolate chip cookie.)
