About Me: Although I have lived most of my life in the same place, I am always on the move - meeting, learning, creating, starting, finishing, growing, helping and especially traveling. I work at a desk job in marketing and come home every day to my little silver cat named Orion. I run a website that's aimed at empowering women to travel the world (www.girlswhotravel.org) and I host a podcast that interviews everyday people doing interesting things in my city (www.yourchicagopodcast.com) I keep my passport ready should the opportunity arise but believe that travel can take place just a block from your home. Until recently, I subsisted on turkey sandwiches and mac & cheese but have turned over a new leaf and am learning how to not just cook, but cook healthy. It's pretty awesome. I just finished my first novel. I live and breathe yoga.
My Passions: travel, yoga, social justice, women's empowerment
My Challenges: So much to do, so little time. If I don't prioritize and accept my limitations, I get overwhelmed and burnt out very quickly!
My Vision for the Future: lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu - may all beings everywhere be happy and free. Think we can do it?
My Areas of Expertise: Marketing, social media, writing
