My self-summary
New England born and raised. When I was younger I did a lot of theatre and dance, then I went to engineering school for a bit (for user-centered design), had a life crisis, and now I'm going to be a nurse. Life can be pretty fun and weird.

"You'd think we'd never stop dancing." Lewis Thomas, The Lives of a Cell
What I’m doing with my life
In nursing school, which takes up most of my life right now. Nursing combines many of my skills and interests, and there's so many places to go with it! I'm hoping to do a bunch of different things with nursing in the future, and I'd also like to go to graduate school for disabilities studies (I'm still passionate about adaptive/assistive user-centered design), and in the meantime I'm enjoying every minute.
I’m really good at
Talking with people about awkward/uncomfortable/taboo subjects without being awkward or judgmental. I'm fairly good at taking care of people and forming therapeutic connections with my patients.

I can make people smile with my energy and stupid jokes.

Word games.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never really asked, but the things people tend to comment on are my awesome naturally blonde wavy hair, the extreme paleness of my skin, how small my feet are, and my kindness.
