It might surprise you to know that I love adventure. To me, the word "adventure" doesn't just describe things like zip-lining through the cloud forest in Monte Verde, Costa Rica (although, I have done that); Adventure is trying something new, something out of your comfort zone. Life is an adventure. It's trying out new food, walking my nephews to school for the first time, breaking something and figuring out how to fix it, learning new technology, turning strangers into friends.

The most important thing to know about me is I embrace the unknown. Learning new things, discovering new places, meeting new people. I don't go into situations blind, however. I'm a planner. I do the research, prepare myself as best I can and enjoy the journey.

When I find myself at home with downtime, I enjoy snuggling on the couch with our cat, Captain Kitty, and my husband Nick with a cup of hot tea while we play video games or watch a movie.
