I'm stoked to have you here! I'm a 22-year-old wanderess obsessed with seeing the world! The catch: I'm also a full time teacher and grad student who likes to do allllll of the things. Busy is an understatement! So while I crave spontaneity and adventure, I also rely on routines, schedules, and bold lipstick to get me through the day with a smile. Do you know the feeling? Many of us are in the same boat: striving to fit seeing the world and becoming our best selves into our own busy lives. I share my weird and wonderful experiences to take the guesswork out of traveling, living a deliciously plant-based lifestyle, and creating everyday happiness.

    Mind body dialogues: learning to love the skin I’m in

    This post is adapted from a piece I wrote for the 2016 Mind Body Dialogues performance at Endicott College. I was always a little bigger growing up. Despite being involved in every sport you could think of, and teaching myself healthy eating habits, genetics got the best of me. I spent my childhood overweight and...

    Creating a focus for your year + the year of creativity

    Have you ever created a focus word for the year? 2016 was the first year I did it – the year of ambition – and I loved having a mantra to help me push through the times I wasn’t feeling so ambitious. This year I’ve created a new focus and I urge you to do...

    Goal setting + my 2017 goals

    Confession: I’m high-key into goal setting. Even if you’re not a fan of New Years Resolutions, you can set goals anytime during the year to help you continue striving to be a better version of yourself! Here are a few ways that I like to set goals and prioritize what’s most important so that I can...
