I was born and raised in a little town in western New York called Olean. This is where I learned that I love the warmth of a sunny day and despise winters that last half of the year. Ultimately this knowledge is what led me to Austin! I enjoy playing outside, especially if I can include my dog. We enjoy hiking, swimming, camping, and long walks on the beach. When I’m relaxing at home I enjoy reading, playing with my cat, gardening, and cooking vegan dishes. I am an avid cyclist and you will see me biking wherever I need to go. I have a degree in Marine Science and I am very passionate about the environment and all living things.
