I’m in Virginia, living with a friend who has become my family, and attempting to maintain a balance of the following:

  • teaching full time in special education
  • going to school part-time for my M.Ed.
  • practicing meditation daily
  • swimming, hiking, running, biking, and lifting
  • training for obstacle course races and triathlon sprints
  • preparing my body and mind to donate a kidney in June 2017
  • reducing my environmental impact
  • paying down over $38,000 in debt
