I am a California native. Lived in Chicago and Seattle and on my way to Australia for a few years to finish my graduate studies.
I love health and wellness and I'm passionate about cooking and baking tasty, healthy foods! I also love hiking, mountains, nature, yoga, and walking. Yes, I fit the Pacific Northwestern Stereotype (if you're at all familiar with it) to boot; and yes, I also like granola. Gluten free granola? Even better. Don't worry, as serious as I am about the granola-bit...I'm also making fun of myself.
I am also passionate about conflict resolution and will be researching Restorative Practices in local schools while I'm in Melbourne. I recently got into jewelry making (and when I say recently, I mean very recently), but so far I'm finding that I really love it.
Most important to note here is that I am in my twenties, but my friends call me "grandma." While I'm vivacious in spirit, my spirit needs its rest. I tend to be in bed by 10pm and up by 6am. I make great french press coffee though, so if you're not a morning person...the coffee may help offset the fact that I'm already up and moving about (though moving quietly!).
Also, not a smoker!
Love and light!
