I was born in Germany and grew up in New York. I always had a strong passion for learning, finding my energy in gaining knowledge. My undergraduate degree is in English and my master’s degree is in business. I am currently working on a Ph.D. in psychology. My diverse interests have provided me opportunities that include developing websites, social media presence, and learning materials for diverse audiences. My world is completed by keeping a little hobby farm with a diverse assortment of animals and working on crafty endeavors from crocheting, needle felting, and sewing to cheesemaking and making mead.
