As a young professional its not hard to get caught up with the appeal of appearing busy. Everyday, my time is compared to people who have the same hours in a day but manage to build a business empire while climbing Mt. Everest at the same time having a balanced home life and the best […]
Brittany and I became friends while working together for the same local non-profit agency. We connected for our love of each other’s style which slowly grew into a good friendship and long conversations about life on her living room sofa. Brit is ambitious, a talented photographer, lively, go-getter and will always laugh with you when […]
Forget the Enneagram or Meyers-Briggs. There are only two types of people in this world: Those who let the microwave run until it rings v.s. those who stop it right before it expires. […]
If you’re reading this blog your either: My friends and family. (Thanks fam!) A stranger who read another one of my posts and stayed around for more. Or you follow me on social media, finally gave into all of my persistent posting, and clicked the “link in bio.” (if you’re that person, go you!) With […]
I wrote a list of goals last week. And I mean real goals, not just the flowery ones that make me look like a good person. No, this list included both the passions of my heart for humanity and the desires of my heart for myself.

Go to every meeting that hand out free shirts or free pizza whether you plan to join or not. Free stuff is free stuff!
I spent two years crushing on a guy I thought was perfect.
No, the title is not click bait. This actually happened.
As much as we can be connected by the swipe of a finger, sometimes stepping into a new job withe face to face personal contact with strangers can be intimidating, especially if you’re stepping out in a field you’re unfamiliar with. Sometimes you want to fast forward from office newbie to one of the gang. […]
I was an active member in a sorority. Honestly, I cant believe it either. What’s even more shocking is I’m sharing my experience rather than taking my little secret to my grave as I initially intended. But before I delve in offer an explanation to those of you who are still recovering from shock, let […]
My first real position came with a offer letter and was accompanied by a proper title. I had worked since 16 yet this was my first “real” job that counted. At least thats what I thought. I was twenty-six, straight off a amazing customer service position that did not suit any of my strengths, and […]
