I am from Puyallup, Washington USA which is about 30 minutes south of Seattle. I am currently a volunteer with the Peace Corps working and living in Bulgaria. I currently work as a Community and Organizational Development worker with the Peace Corps. I love to exercise, travel, cook, and experience. When traveling I am always interested in local foods and how to prepare them. I love coffee and tea. I hope to work with coffee farmers earn a better wage for their product. I am also drawn to the outdoors. I love hiking and other activities like that. Experiencing new cultures by meeting new people is one of my favorite ways to learn about a new place or new culture. I am pretty flexible about plans and try to not stress about things i cannot control.
