I'm a Humboldt County girl, who moved to the Bay Area with my boyfriend of 11 years (and our cat) about 5 years ago. I've been working at a company in the Administrative department while trying to figure out what I REALLY wanted to do with the rest of my life. I found through trial and error that I greatly enjoy rock-hounding. Mining, scouring the wilderness for rocks, going to gem and mineral shows...I absolutely love it all! Since the Bay Area wasn't doing it for us anymore, we decided to move to WASHINGTON!! And now everything is starting to fit into place.

I tried doing the 'responsible', cookie cutter thing and get a 'real' degree while pursuing my passions on the side... but I just can't!! I'm not meant to be stuck in school, studying something that I don't care about. So instead, I'm taking classes at GIA to obtain my Graduate Gemology Degree, and to hopefully move into a more passion-oriented career path! I'm creating a website, an app, and an Etsy shop, and plan on joining the Seattle Rock & Lapidary Club.

I'm really trying to embrace positive thinking, and moreover, creative/positive manifestation. If you can envision it, you can make it happen. So far, it's filled me with happiness and goals, so I can say that it's been successful. I'm ready to THRIVE!!
