about me

Where I'm From

I always feel like I'm at a loss with "About Me" pages. I never know what's too long or too short, or what people really care to know. But considering this site (right now) is just for class, I'll just give you a brief overview.

I was born in Hanover, NH, and I lived in NH until I was about 6. My family moved to Punta Gorda, FL, in 1996 due to my dad's job change, but I still feel like the New England blood is still there somewhere, even if it's thinned out.

The only real reason anyone would how to find Punta Gorda in a map is because it was where Hurricane Charley hit in 2004. That was also the year I fractured my back due to a boating accident in the spring, so that was definitely an interesting year. (Not trying to throw a pity party, here, but I have broken some weird bones, so it's always an interesting fact.)
Enjoying Fish and Chips in Ireland
I began studying at UF in the summer of 2007. I have tried to take classes in all different types of media in an attempt to be versatile, but my favorites are photography and design.

I studied abroad with the College of Journalism in the summer of 2010 in Galway and Dublin, Ireland and London, England. I absolutely fell in love with both places, as you can see by the ridiculously amazing fish and chips at right.

I have enjoyed a variety of extracurriculars in college, and I'm very grateful for the people I have met through them. Some of these include the Extreme Dance Company, Journalism and Communications Ambassadors, Sigma Kappa sorority, Junior Achievement, and the UF Aerial Club.

When I graduate, I will be working for a year in San Antonio, TX for an organization called City Year, teaching kids in inner-city schools. Yes, it would be awesome to be the next Hillary Swank from that one teacher movie, but I'll let you know how that works out.

Visit my blog called Something for the Rest of Us. It's kind of a pointless summary of my day-to-day, but I try to keep it interesting nonetheless.
