Born and raised in Tennessee, I went to BYU and moved to Arizona shortly after graduating do to a program called Teach for America. I'm an educator in Arizona. I love to travel, experience new cultures, cook for friends, working with children, spend time with my family and just enjoy life in general. I'm always up for an adventure, I love doing just about anything from white water rafting and horseback riding to visiting museums. I like to make people laugh, and hopefully this doesn't sound too "cliche" but serve people as well; laughter and helping other people enjoy life is what brings me the most joy!
I was diagnosed with cancer in December of 2012 and after surgeries and radiation I am now cancer-free. It was a difficult experience, but it made me more appreciative of life in general and making the most of life and spending it with people I love. Life is too short to waste, so I think it should be spent with people you care about and doing something you love.
I'm on this sight because a good friend thought I needed to be open to the idea of meeting someone somewhere else besides my ward. Hmph. haha I'm open to anything I suppose, but I would so much rather interact with people in person. I'm an open book, so ask me any questions you'd like. And best of luck on this site :)
