My self-summary
My Christian faith is the central part of my life. During the past year, I've realized just how much it colors the ways in which I view the world and grapple with questions. I LOVE to travel and experience new cultures. And, I love spending time with friends and family. I have a passion for life and am always looking for creative outlets... many times this results in photography and pottery.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Nashville after spending 9.5 years in DC, where I worked in the nonprofit and government sectors. I have a master's in conflict analysis and resolution, and it was a trip to South Sudan about four years ago that sent me over the edge to return to school and study this field. I'm incredibly interested in conflict transformation, particularly the role that faith plays within the forgiveness and healing process (And, it was a trip to Rwanda and spending time with genocide survivors that has prompted this interest). In Nashville, I found my sweet spot working for a Kenya-based development organization. In life, I want to love others well.
I’m really good at
Hmmm... making new friends comes easily to me (and I'm hoping that's the case in my new city!), I'm a good gift-giver, and I've been told I'm a good storyteller.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have a rather wide selection (I'm definitely a fan of paper books) that ranges from fiction and non-fiction to cookbooks and faith-related topics.
Movies: Comedy, drama, documentary... anything with a good story. I'm not a fan of horror or slasher films.
Food: For the last two years, I've primarily been a vegetarian. My hands-down favorite type of food is Thai.
The six things I could never do without
1. God & Faith
2. Family
3. Friends
4. Sunshine
5. Walks, hikes, spending time in nature
6. Laughter
