A self-proclaimed “plastic addict”, on weekends she can be spotted at local parks playing disc golf. Her true passion, however, is international travel. Her personal highlight reel includes pilgrimages along the Camino de Santiago, trekking to Machu Picchu and getting lost while kayaking on a river in Thailand.
