When she’s not organizing people, places, and things, she loves to travel and try new things. For the past three years, she has trekked to a far-away Nevada desert to attend a music and art festival.
Before moving to Arizona she was an avid surfer. She has traveled the world searching for the perfect waves and loves to catch them on her baby blue 7' 8" long board. When landlocked she enjoys painting, creating art and visiting museums.
