Not many people can say they love their job, and I am lucky enough to love the HELL out of mine. Friends and family are extremely important to me and I would do anything for them. I love being outdoors, being spontaneous, and being goofy. Life is too short to not have fun and be crazy once in a while. I try to give more than I get, love more than I am loved, and always see the beauty in others. Sometimes this world is an awful place, but I refuse to know I had any part in that. I want to make it better for everyone, one smile at a time.”
