I’m a born storyteller. That’s what my mom would tell me. She also noted that at a very young age I wanted to be a psychologist. I often wonder about how true that is but it’s the story that serves as a baseline for my life. Whether true […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine!
