    “I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.” – Rumi
  3. Favorite spot in Baltimore:
    So many!! The Charles Theatre, One World Café, the BMA, Atwater’s Bakery, Camden Yards… the list goes on!
  4. Where is your hometown?
    McLean, VA—but I have been adopted by Baltimore and plan to make it my hometown for good… Go Ravens!
  5. What is the most meaningful class you’ve taken?
    Introduction to Pastoral Counseling with Dr. Dee Preston Dillon.
  6. Who is your inspiration?
    My spiritual director Fran—no one has taught me more about authenticity and the free, exhilarating, occasionally terrifying but always beautiful gift of life than she has.
  7. What are three unusual things about yourself?
    1. Growing up, I wanted to be a spy or a queen.
    2. I am a pretty big nerd (and I own it!) about holistic living and dieting.
    3. I rescue bugs.
  8. What is your dream job?
    Working at a “Wellness Center” in which traditional therapy and “alternative” medicine are combined—being able to focus on and heal the WHOLE person! Writing and speaking would be in there too somewhere. If I didn’t want to go into this field, I would want to be a fundraiser for a non-profit.
  9. What else should the readers of Making Meaning know about you? 
     I’m happiest when I’m outdoors; I love to do yoga and dance and plan to get my yoga teacher’s license this summer; I consider guacamole to be a food group unto itself; I am very interested in the Enneagram and plan to become a certified Enneagram practitioner; my favorite movie is “It’s A Wonderful Life”; I’m a social introvert; I love exploring new places, whether it’s a new city or a new shop around the corner; I am a big fan of black sharpies and a compulsive  “thank you” note writer; my friends, family and community mean the world to me.
