A little about me…
I grew up in rural northeastern North Carolina and spent the first 24 years of my life living in a 120 mile radius of where I grew up. I think the Outer Banks is one of the greatest places on earth and cannot be convinced otherwise. I attended N.C. State where I received my Bachelors of Science in Animal Science (2010) and Masters of Animal Science (2012). Go Pack! I worked as a veterinary technician for 8 years before moving to the great state of Texas where I currently reside. I originally moved to Texas to work for Texas A&M University but I still have no idea what an Aggie is. I now live in North Texas with my boyfriend, who is a firefighter/paramedic, and our 3 dogs and I am currently working in the field of genetic immunology. I am also working on my 3rd degree, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Obviously, I’m on the path to be a lifetime student.
Things I love…
I love North Carolina and a part of my heart will always be there. I love hunting, fishing, and most outdoor activities in general. I am the happiest and most peaceful when sitting on a beach at the Outer Banks. I love baking, cooking and pretty much all food. While I do try to maintain a healthy lifestyle, donuts are my weakness and I think it is a sin to pass up the “hot sign” at Krispy Kreme. I am very much a home body and most of the time I am perfectly content just spending time with my dogs and boyfriend. However, I do love to travel and try to take as many trips as the budget allows! I have a 3 year love affair with CrossFit and I am currently a member at CrossFit972. As a southern girl it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I love Jesus and my family. I am also a huge fan of wine, margaritas and Tex-Mex. Dudley is my Boston Terrier and the absolute love of my life. I am also pretty fond of Krieger, a Deutsch-Drahthaar and Baron, a Deustch-Kurzhaar. (They are not German Wirehaired and Shorthaired Pointers.)
Since I live 1200 miles from “home” I created this blog in an effort for family and friends to keep up with my adventures.
