I love to surf, mountain bike, camp, take my dog to the beach . . . anything outdoors really. I am in my 4th year of studies at Five Branches University, studying acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I also received a master's degree in land resources from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT. Living in Bozeman is where I really gained an appreciation for the outdoors, the mountains especially. Growing up in Santa Cruz is where I gained an appreciation for the ocean and the beaches. I love to travel with my partner so our journeys usually take us to one or the other - mountains and/or beaches. It's a good life with lots to explore!
