I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I now live in Salem, about an hour south of Portland with my husband and two young boys.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14. “Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong. Your every act should be done with love.”
I love this verse because it reminds me to keep my faith in God, His plan, and to be brave in the challenges that I face. I also love the reminder to always act in love. My priest growing up was incredibly passionate about the phrase “You Are Loved,” and I strive to remember that always and to pass that love to all those around me.
My first official job was at a Hickory Farms kiosk at a mall. I got it to be able to earn money to go with a friend to Hawaii. Before that, I babysat and was a soccer referee.
I enjoy reading, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and Oregon State Beaver sporting events.
Bucket List Item
I am excited to get to travel with my family. Once my boys are a little older, I’m excited to take them to different areas of the United States and then to Europe.
I loved getting to explore Europe while I studied abroad in Germany. I also can’t wait to go back to Disneyland and Hawaii at some point.
Person I’d Like to Meet
Hermione Granger. The Harry Potter series was written during my high school and college years. I have read them all time and time again.
