Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog. If you’re on this page, I’m guessing you want to know a little bit more about me – so here goes!

  • I can memorize multitudes of random facts and spit them out at a moment’s notice – my family lovingly calls me “Tour Guide Barbie”
  • I’ve taught over 500 people how to ride a Segway
  • I’ve moved 20 times, so don’t really consider myself from any one place. Instead, I tell people I’m “from the Navy”
  • I celebrated my 50th birthday by climbing to the Crown of the Statue of Liberty in NYC
  • Two recent accomplishments of which I’m proud: riding 240 miles across Austria on my bike (April 2016) and attending the Women’s March in Washington D.C. (January 2017)
  • Currently training for my next bike adventure through the Czech Republic in September 2018
  • Travel, porch sitting, reading and flowers are my jam – and I’m always up for spontaneous adventure!
