I am originally a Michigander but moved to Austin about six years ago for a teaching program. Although I was originally skeptical about being a Texan and the idea of teaching, I have found I am passionate about both. Last summer I spent 7 weeks in Spain by myself, so I would definitely consider myself to be independent and someone that loves traveling. I have a big heart, and I am fun, outgoing, and sometimes silly. When I can't travel, I love cooking, going out with friends, volunteering, working on learning Spanish, running town lake, live music, and all the other amazing things this city has going for it. If you wanna know more, just ask!
