Current city: Lakewood Ranch, FL

Age: 28

Total countries visited: 7

What makes you interesting: I am a science major who edits life sciences and medical research papers, and who is now also working as a Travel Agent and blogger.

What brands do you love: Under Armour sneakers, Herschel backpacks, and Supergoop! sunblock.

What’s your favorite passport stamp: Iceland, because it has been the most incredible travel experience up to date.

What’s one thing you have no problem breaking the bank for when traveling: Definitely food. I also enjoy a good night sleep and don’t like to compromise too much on accommodations.

How has travel changed you or how do you hope it will change you: It had put numerous things in perspective. Especially how much there is to see and learn, and how we as humans don’t have that time available to us because of all our responsibilities and bills.

What are your travel pet peeves: I’m scared of doing something that offends locals. Crying babies and loud talkers are also not my favorite things in the world.

Describe the last time you tried something new: I tried Soda Bread for the first time, drove on the left side of the road, and hung out with hawks and owls just this last week.

Who is the most interesting person you have met while traveling: This is a difficult one… but during a summer internship at the University of Iowa I met a group of peers from different backgrounds who had gone through so much to be where they were. We all had our challenges and struggles but were trying to be the best version of ourselves and ‘save the world’. I would say that as of today most of them are actually doing something meaningful and helping their communities in their own way.

Next travel destination: Probably Portugal or Norway.
