I’m just a Midwest girl living in the city (ok, suburbs really), wishing I were living in the country. I’m constantly dreaming of big sky, the coast, waves, and mountains. Lover of flowers and all things outdoors; hiking, biking, fishing, cross country skiing, swimming, snowshoeing, tennis, not running. I’m easily distracted; I’m probably not listening to what you tell me as much as I try. I’m a big klutz, and am injured often. Working on obtaining a Buddhist lifestyle, kind of, not really, but kind of. Hate brushing my hair but pride myself on getting pretty in record time. I’m a laugh and adventure seeker, self-proclaimed food and wine snob (except I don’t eat the cute animals ie. pigs, cows, lambs, ducks), style magazine connoisseur, believer in lemon water, and all other health fads.

I’m an Emergency Room nurse, Doctorate of Nurse Practitioner student, Narcoleptic, and 2 dog/cat/frog/tadpole mom. I’m girlfriend to the sweetest, most motivated, giving, and should I mention high stress guy there is. Daughter to the coolest parents who are more hip than I am, Middle sister to two beautiful women, and friend to the same broads since 1994.


This is my adventure through my late 20’s, not knowing where I’m supposed to be, but trying to figure it out a little bit more each day.
