Two parents, one sister, a few dogs. Living all over the country and ultimately relying on each other.

My Advice to Young Women
You can do anything you want to do and don’t let anyone tell you anything different because they are wrong! Find people who believe in you and let them help you!
How I Balance it All:
Lists, lists and more lists! I have a list of all my lists. Seriously… realizing that sometimes things have to give so when you have to pick and choose, pick and choose wisely around what you value most. Some things just have to wait.
