I am originally from upstate NY, but I moved to the great state of
Maine in 2005 to go to school. Since graduating from college I have
been working in the outdoor education field focusing on sea
kayaking and sailing on the Maine coast. During the school year I
teach natural history to elementary school students and in the
summer lead extended wilderness trips with teenagers on the ocean.
I really enjoy spending as much time as possible in the sun and
moving my body!
What I’m doing with my life
Living the dream.
I’m really good at
Being sassy, ocean navigation, cooking, kayaking, pretending I am a
mermaid, animals, camping, painting my toenails, eating all of the
rice krispies treats, coloring, identifying things I find outside.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am pretty short and sometimes wear big nerdy glasses because I
have poor eyesight, I also laugh loudly and often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have a television but when I have time I enjoy medical
dramas,(ER, Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs, Nip Tuck) and disney movies
(The Little mermaid, Alice in Wonderland, My favorite is Paulie,
which is about a talking parrot.) I also like regular movies too
but childish movies help me relax and zone out a bit. I really like
documentaries like Planet Earth, Blue Planet, and Life. David
Attenborough has a voice like butter. Smooth and spreadable?
I listen to a lot of different music from top 40 to bluegrass and
love stories about true adventures on the ocean or in the
wilderness. Like Adrift, A Walk in the Woods, Dove, The Heart of
the Sea...The Ocean Almanac is an amazing book I am obsessed with
full of cool sea lore and facts.
There is not a lot of food that I don't like to eat besides
potatoes. They are just so yucky! My favorite foods include cheese,
mango, avocados, olives, kimchi, cherries, salad, crusty bread and
wine. I could eat those things everyday. But my guilty pleasure is
rice krispies treats.
The six things I could never do without
1. The sea
2. Burt's bees chapstick
4. Fuzzy animals to cuddle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything(my mind is like a drunken monkey), and the ocean.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably in bed by 9.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am afraid of vomit, gorillas and bees. And its hilarious that I
hate barf because I work on the ocean a lot and sometimes people
You should message me if
you are awesome.
