I was born in San Diego, CA on June 29th, 1989. First child in my family, and boy did I give my parents a run for their money with my colic. So much so that they waited another 5 years before having my brother, and 15 years before having my sister. I’ll let you guess which of those wasn’t planned ;).
Growing up, I played everything from soccer, to basketball, to softball. I swam on swim team, gave gymnastics a shot, and broke some boards in karate. I loved theater, and was in a handful of plays. I got to try everything, and I’m so thankful for that.
In high school, I traded in my softball glove for a cheer uniform. I met some of my best friends to this day on that squad. I had my first serious relationship, and got my first job at 16. The studying paid off when I got accepted to UCSB, where I spent the next 4 years.
Studying math and economics took only a portion of my time, while the rest was spent having fun, making memories, and learning life lessons. When I graduated in 2011, I was ready for the real world. I had definitely made the most of my college experience.
Since college, life has only gotten better. I found Jesus, and my faith. A girl who thought she’d be married at age 23 found independence instead. I always wanted a true love story, and I found mine with my faith.
