What traits in others are you attracted to?
I love people who are driven, motivated and kind. If you can be the kind of person who can accomplish big dreams and goals, but remain grounded and a good person who treats others well, I think that is incredibly admirable. I love people who help push me to be better and dream bigger. And also anyone who makes me laugh and loves to laugh in return.
How do you want to be remembered?
This is something that has shifted for me over the years, but I want to be remembered as a person who lived an admirable life. A woman who was kind, helpful, caring, loved other fiercely and lived her life to the fullest.
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?
EVERYWHERE! But really, everywhere. 😉 I really want to go to Patagonia and hike and I’d love to do this with friends and my fiance. My friend Caitlin and I are planning to hike part of the Appalachian Trail hopefully in the next couple years. I’m planning on going to Italy (for the third time), Croatia and Greece for my honeymoon next year, and that will be with my (soon to be) husband. These are just a few, there are a million more.
What do you do in your free time?
I’m a reading fanatic. I love to hike, camp and be in nature/outside. I love to try new food and restaurants and also to cook. I’m big into trying out and learning about different natural things–I compost, use reusable bags, just started making my own cleaning products, etc. I love indie movies and watching Netflix. I don’t eat refined sugar on a daily basis anymore, but when I have “cheat” days I am obsessed with chocolate, cake, cheesecake, cookies, you name it, I’m a dessert fiend.
If you could be any animal which one would you prefer to be and why?
Okay, so part of me would say a dog, because they always seem so happy and energetic, but I think I would say a bird, maybe an eagle, because I desperately wish I could fly.
