I'm 25 years old. Female. 5'11". Live in Missouri. Love animals. Am ready to reach goals and fill my life with positive energy of all kinds. Yay life!


I have recently officially been diagnosed with PCOS and am trying to heal myself naturally with my choice of diet. I have been vegetarian and then(now) vegan for a total of 8 or so years and am now trying to integrate more raw foods into my life. I like to research different foods and their healing properties and try to treat my body and any issues which arise in as natural way as I can.

I love to hike, kayak, canoe, camp, ride bikes, and do just about anything outside. I feel most at peace with myself when I can be out in the natural world, especially near water.

I'm currently finishing my Associate of Arts degree where I focused a lot on photography. It will be complete in may 2009 and then I plan to continue my education in order to work with helping animals. I'm exploring options in Non-Profit Administrative type work and love to volunteer hands-on with animals of all kinds. I hope putting these things together can lead me to a rewarding career in improving the lives of the non-humans we share this amazing planet with.

I live with my partner Eric, adopted dog Lilly May, cat Roxanne, and newly adopted pup named Japser. I love my little family. Always an adventure around here!

Anyway, hooray for life and for sparkpeople. I began my journey of January 20, 2009 and am aiming to lose 44lbs while gaining many other wonderful things.

My Program:
I'm working to get all the right nutrients and staying within my nutrition goals.

Getting my body moving.

Way more hiking and such when the weather gets just a tad warmer.

Personal Information:
I live in St. Louis, MO and usually like it. I one day hope to have some land and a greenhouse and room to roam and raise my kids. Have a place for everyone to run wild and free like I had at my grandma's as a kid.

Other Information:
I love to read memoirs and so called "self-help" books.

Not big on new video games but I love the old NES and playing tetris now and then.

Mostly I love all things outdoors. Nothing beats a day in the sunshine.
