To Blog or Not to Blog


I’ve never made a habit of blogging before, but maybe I can change that. Stay tuned to this space while I can think of important and meaningful things to add to the internet. 🙂

My Education


I graduated from Incline High School in 2009 with an Honors Diploma. I received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Administration from Northern Arizona University in 2013.

My plan is to return to college in order to further my skills in the managerial realm. Ideally I’d like to achieve a Master of Science in Business Analytics and potentially even an Master of Business Administration.

I am a reserved individual, but my drive to get things done overcomes my inhibition. The quality of my assignments as a team member has been described as diligent and I continue to set higher goals for my well-being, professionalism and experiences. My upbringing in Lake Tahoe along with my degree from Northern Arizona University gives me passion for working with people and the ecosystem. The time I’ve spent in the Sierra Nevada mountains and the desert southwest has played a significant role in cultivating my perspective. I believe that the Earth has limited resources and our communities must treat the environment and each other with respect while celebrating our differences and supporting disadvantaged populations.


I’m really good at paperwork…


My resource management spreadsheets are insane…


I have PRIDE in who I am and who I am becoming…


Community wellness and education is just one of my passions…

My favorite quotes go like this:

Warren Buffet

Life is like a snowball, the important part is finding wet snow and a long hill.”

Walt Disney

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

John F. Kennedy

“I am an idealist without illusions.”

Barack H. Obama

“…That is America. Those bonds of affection; that common creed. We don’t fear the future; we shape it. We embrace it, as one people, stronger together than we are on our own.”

Winnie the Pooh

“Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

John Steinbeck

“In every bit of honest writing in the world, there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love.”
