I care a great deal about the environment and being a responsible steward of the earth. I also care a lot about my personal health and wellbeing, as well as that of my community and the world at large. I am very knowledgeable about botanical medicine and alternative medical therapies (my undergrad was a holistic pre-med program).
Music has played a huge role in forming who I am as a person. I’ve played the piano since I was five and it's something that will always be a part of my life. I also love to sing. I'm a pretty terrible dancer, haha but I'm always down.
I’m a big history/geography nerd and an avid reader. I love discussing current issues and politics - it's something I can't help but be passionate about. I know what I believe in, and I don't shy away from expressing my thoughts and opinions (while respecting other people's beliefs). I am hungry for knowledge and I feel like I just want a piece of everything. I'm always ready for a new challenge!
