I could use this space to write a rags to riches story about how I used to be fat and insecure, and then I went vegan and lost a bunch of weight and became healthy and strong, but that would be boring.  While all thats true, I'd rather tell you who I really am.

  • I went vegan for my health but the lifestyle has shaped who I am and the way I see the world
     
  • I'm a feminist and am always looking for ways to break gender stereotypes, especially when raising my girl AND boy.
     
  • I want to see and experience every corner of the world
     
  • I believe all people regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, etc. should be equal and have the same opportunities
     
  • I believe all living things are equal and should be treated with kindness
     
  • I love to be creative through recipe creation, photography, and home design
     
  • I am most relaxed when my home is clean and organized
     
  • I feel that we should all spend more time challenging ourselves and exploring the world rather than getting stuck in a small comfortable bubble. The world would be a much more peaceful and accepting place. 
     
  • I hate running but love lifting weights
     
  • I would much rather go on a trip or an adventure than receive a material gift
     
  • Hiking up a mountain and floating on a lake energizes me
