About me

After a crazy couple of years of traveling and volunteering around the world and the States I decided to grow up and settle down.  I got a job I loved as a respite worker for children with special needs and started college. 

That lasted exactly two semesters.

Surprisingly (or not surprisingly) I found myself back in Uganda for the 5th time interning with Abide Family Center. What was supposed to me a three month internship has lead to so much more.  I'm now preparing and working to spend a year in Uganda working with Abide. 

Working on family preservation and orphan prevention is a crazy ride but one I'm so glad to be learning from.  Life is messy and complex but also beautiful. 

Feel free to come along for the ride!
