I am quite the chameleon, wear many hats, and am constantly re-inventing myself as I learn and grow and am therefore addicted to education. I feel as if there are not enough hours in the day to learn, as well as to share what I have learned with my clients, friends, and loved ones. I love the outdoors and the sense of calm and renewal I get when I escape into nature, especially to the ocean. I also enjoy camping and riding motorcycles, quads and other off road vehicles in the sand dunes of Galmis with family and friends. No matter what I am doing, I always manage to find the fun in it!
