After growing up on a small farm in the hills of West Virginia, I attended Marshall University and earned my Masters Degree in Psychology. Dreaming of adventure and a brand new life, I ventured across the USA and landed in Twin Falls, Idaho. It was in the rugged, harsh, and yet, beautiful land of the west that I found my true passion. My heart found a new home amongst the jagged mountains and fresh, clear streams. I did something I swore I would never do again. I fell in love…with nature, with adventure, with life. I now reside in North Carolina in an effort to be closer to my family, but I continue to explore the wonders of this world and the simple daily beauties which surround us all.
