A little about me....
Hometown: I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
Studied / Lived Abroad: I studied abroad for one year as an exchange student at Kansai Gaidai University in Hirakata-shi, Japan. I later went back to teach English in Kagawa-ken, Japan.
A few of my hobbies: I enjoy traveling, hiking, and swimming.
Something I Love About Seattle: I like that in the morning you can be by the seaside, and by afternoon up in the mountains skiing! Seattle has all the different outdoors to explore.
My Favorite Apps: Offer-Up and InstaCart. Offer-up is a great way to find gently-used items for your place, and InstaCart is an inexpensive option to have local groceries delivered to your home.
My Favorite Store: Checking out the REI flagship store in Seattle, including trying out their indoor climbing wall !
My First Job: Networking with people really does help you find internships or jobs. When I was in high school, my friend helped me get my first job as a medical clinic helping patients and working with medical records.
I bet you never knew that I..... hiked the entire Grand Canyon from the South to the North Rim. It was an amazing experience, and I was most surprised to find the most beautiful waterfall, called Ribbon Falls, at the bottom!
