the key to living a happy life is being curious and living in a state of wonder OF THE UNKNOWN. It is Actively testing, experimenting and exploring whatever sparks your interest.
READING & OFFICIATING
After reading in over 6 weddings, where I was assigned to pick the perfect poem or write one, I have become somewhat of a professional "Wedding Reader." My most recent adventure took me into the world of wedding officiating after conducting my friend Amy and Steven's wedding August 2015. What an honor to facilitate a joining of hearts, families and communities. I hope to continue in this adventure and perform other weddings. Please contact me if you would like an overview of a spirit led wedding.
I moved to Japan immediately after college and worked as an English Teacher for two years. From there I moved to Brasil where I worked and lived in the richest neighborhoods in Rio Grande do Sul and Floripa and volunteered in the largest slum in Latin America, Rocinha. Following Brasil I moved to a small village in Argentina where I taught and directed classes at a small school.
Living and teaching abroad came from a desire to experience the world through living amongst cultures, communities, languages that weren't my native land. I learned other languages, met friends, explored, and tried new things. But the most magical thing that happened was that I deepened my knowledge about myself and my own culture. By opening up to the world, the world opened itself to me and molded me into who I am today. Not a flag. Not a country. A woman of the world. Contact me if you are need advice on teaching or just want to share experiences.
