Born and raised in Kansas City, I developed a love for tennis, travel and photography early in life. The daughter of a teacher, summer vacations were spent in the family wagon, traveling the lower 48 and Europe snapping pictures of countless scenic overlooks and (inter)national treasures. And when not on the road, it was a sure bet you'd find me at the city courts playing in the challenge ladder, taking a lesson or hitting against the backboard.
It was through these activities that I learned the invaluable lessons of patience and acceptance, the value of opening your mind to the new and different, and how think strategically and account for changing variables.
I am curious.A constant Google-er, I thrive on learning and value the clever & inventive.
I am creative. I love considering “what could be” and delight in identifying patterns or making connections in information others might consider a complex mess.
I am determined.Tenacious when it comes to my goals, I choose to see opportunity when I come upon a roadblock.
I am future-focused. Although I keep the destination in my sights, I believe it is best to remain open and flexible as you plot your path to get there.
