I am a Pennsylvania girl at heart, but my adventures have taken me from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, to the flat plains of Patagonia, the island shores of Haiti and to a little mud hut village in Tanzania where I fell in love. I am currently residing in Northern Virginia with my handsome husband, but we are always looking for a new adventure!
I am an oncology certified nurse and for almost six years that is what I spent my days doing. My path has now led me to the ICU, but some things have not changed. My patients are my heroes and I have been privileged to fight alongside of them. I have learned countless life lessons from them and saw how they did not let the disease steal their joy. I look forward to the day when we find a cure.
My passion is to give a voice to the voiceless and to help others share their story. In doing this, I have seen beautiful and heartbreaking things. I have a heart for the hurting and the vulnerable, and I long to bring wholeness and restoration to this world.
Being married to Mwita has been my greatest joy in life. He is my love and my greatest encourager. He is constantly challenging me to think creatively, try new things, and to dream bigger! He has been my teacher and is my very best friend. I love my people, my family. They are my rock. Who I am today is thanks to them.
I spend half my time dreaming, drink way too much coffee, and wear my heart on my sleeve. This is me.
