We also ask people to answer three or four of the following questions to be included on the website, in addition to the above information.
Tell us about a person or life event that has shaped your life.
One year after I graduated college, I left my first job and went backpacking in Australia on my own. I highly recommend traveling on your own to people fresh out of school, (although, I would recommend saving a bit more money beforehand than I did :)). It was the single most eye opening experience of my life, and not only did I see some beautiful places, but I also learned a lot about the world, the nature of people, and myself.
• Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
Sundays are my "day of nothing." The rest of the week is so busy, so I build in this recovery time where I don't make any plans and can spend the day relaxing around the house, (or going to the beach if it's a beautiful day).
• Provide an interesting or random fact about yourself.
I recently completed my first women's fiction novel, loosely based on my experiences traveling.
