"Do you read a lot of Jane Austen? Because she keeps showing up in your press releases." -My first journalism teacher's critique of my over-descriptive writing habits

I am a PR-trained college graduate determined to live the life of the active time traveler. Until a proper mode of transportation is discovered, I enjoy traveling the world, promoting international education, meeting new people and always taking time for a cup of Lady Grey tea.

In case you're hungry, my recipe for success includes:

• 4 cups of intercultural communication
• 2.5 cups of a sense of humor
• 1 cup of an adventurous spirit (use generously)
• 3 tbs. of well-developed leadership

Stir together in a large mixing bowl, add a dash of confidence, and bake for 1 hour at 350°--or until lightly browned with success. Enjoy daily for added results.

Still Interested to Know More? Some Fun Facts:

I studied abroad for a year in Stirling, Scotland with University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC)

During the time I studied abroad, I kept a blog that still makes me laugh. Case in point: It's called Once Upon a Time in Scotland.

I've called home to places that include: a small mountain town in Northern California; the hustle and bustle of San Francisco; and most recently to the adventurous mountain state of Colorado

I disliked beer and seafood, and had no concept of packing light until I studied abroad. This is no longer the case (aka: living in Colorado = beer-lover's utopia)

I am the oldest of four sisters -- and, according to my mother, as bossy as is expected of the eldest. I also consider my sisters some of my best friends, so it works out ;)

My appreciation for science fiction extends to anything created by Joss Whedon, the Marvel Universe, J.R.R. Tolkien and J.K. Rowling

I have mountain lion nightmares (long story)

I scour Google on a consistent basis for the following: local tea shops/parlors, Celtic/Scottish festivals around the country, and time-traveler machines

I have a cat named after Elinor Dashwood of Sense and Sensibility. She enjoys days and evenings spent curled up on a blanket while I quote Austen to her in a faux-British accent.

Mr. Darcy may have ruined me for other boys, but I'll always be a Wentworth girl. The man's skills at letter writing are unparallelled.

I own what may be considered "too many" of the following: scarves, boots, teacups, historical fiction, time period films, chapstick and bobby pins (I swear those last ones trail after me like breadcrumbs)

No matter how often I travel, or where I go, I never lose that feeling of awe in seeing architectural marvels, meeting new people, and trying new foods

I believe the following should be life requirements: stepping outside your comfort zone, having a bad hair day, losing a board game, getting lost in a new country, failing at a job interview, falling in public, sending a handwritten letter, asking for help, saying I love you, and most importantly: always, always, always believing in yourself, your dreams, and the possibility of the impossible
