Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.
A LITTLE ABOUT MEA firm believer that the unexamined life is not worth living, I value self-discovery and enlightenment above all else. In a previous chapter, I was a curious lil’ bookworm who grew into an aspiring professor. I wanted to walk down every neighborhood and experience every culture. Road-tripping through the summers, I fell in love with Manhattan, got stuck on the Bart in Berkeley, stood in awe of the Rockies, and pointed out the hugeness of the Montana sky.
Last year, I closed my academic journals, folded my corduroy skirts, and journeyed west—led entirely by my heart. I learned that I won’t be able to explain everything, that sometimes it’s better to feel than to think my way, and that living requires one to surrender to the flow.
I am learning that there’s no such thing as the right time—that it’s always “right now,” that we will wait to feel 100% ready but never will, and that if our dreams aren’t scary, they’re not big enough. I learned that with every new culture, we define our values; with every new street, we add a new page to our story; and with every new friendship, we give a love that grows fuller and fuller with an appreciation for life.
I’m lucky to be able to share my passion for travel and believe that it’s the best medium for discovery. I love journeying with travel nurses who are embarking on their own adventures. My job is done well when I help you embrace your fears and find the courage to set sail! It’s an extra perk that I get to hear all about your fun travels!
