The Back Story:
Some of you who know me or have read my story, know that I got into this industry in a very round about and unconventional way. What I love about this industry, is that is fuels, breeds, and encourages unconventionality, so I started off right on track, in my opinion. I stumbled into this field because of the passions I have and those passions were fueled, in part, by witnessing and experiencing other passion throughout the world.
The turning point, that I can pin down, was my first trip to Europe when I was a Junior in college. I've always had these passions, but I never thought I could do anything with them, until then. This trip opened my eyes to adventure (although I've always had an adventurous streek in me) and encouraged me to try something new. While in Europe, I was studying communications and developing a research project for my International Studies minor. These 2 things alone were so far different than anything I'd focused on in academics for my 1st 3 years in college. It was a breath of fresh air to not have to think about the human body and it's recovery process.
In the end, upon arrival back in the states, I declared "I will not go to grad school to pursue my DPT". You can just imagine the heads that exploded when I decided this, trust me, I was met with far more opposition than I expected. But everything worked out in the end because all those pieces have led me here, pursuing my passion every day!
I've picked out 3 photos from the Europe trip below that really capture the transition I had into this field and the feelings I was forming while abroad.
Now that you know the back story, let's talk about passion...
I have a passion for fashion, creativity, art and travel. These things all intertwine for me and are fueled when I encounter more passion. I wanted to share a few of those passions that drive my passion. It's a combination of people, places, and experiences.

Alright, I've talked too much... hope you know a little bit more about the inner-workings of my mind and that I encouraged you to think further, do more, and step outside the lines.
Yours in Style,
