I'm a firm believer in empowering and encouraging the people who surround us. Life can be a confusing and overwhelming place sometimes, but it doesn't always have to be that way. I'm blessed to know that my purpose is to make the lives of others' easier. I know I've also needed the hand of another to walk me through some of this human experience. I guess we all need a little help sometimes, don't you? I like to think of myself as both a teacher, student, and tour guide in life, having experienced it from it's exhilarating highs to it's devastating lows. A lover of nature, and the outdoors, I try to travel extensively, learning as much as I possible can about human nature and the world around me along the way.
