I am an adventurer with a passion for travel. I've circumnavigated the world on a ship, marking more than 60,000 nautical miles and 20 countries traveled. After moving back from Los Angeles, I began my career in healthcare. When I'm not working, you can find me with my yellow lab, Bella. I also sit on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity.
