Against all of my expectations, I decided to take the scenic route through college. I learned of the opportunity to take an International Public Relations course at Regent’s University in London and jumped on it! Little did I know of the travel bug I would catch.
A Time to Travel
After almost two years with the American Heart Association, that travel bug I caught in college came back. I packed two bags and moved my life to St. Thomas, where I accepted a seasonal Marketing Coordinator position with Little Switzerland Jewelers.
My Favorite Souvenir
Meet Todd – my firstborn. He was found in a dumpster in St. Thomas and I became his new mom! His official breed? Coconut Retriever (aka Mutt – but this name sounds way cooler).
About Darn Time
So maybe I took the scenic route through school? I graduated from UNC Charlotte in December 2015. Here’s a shot with my biggest supporters – mom and dad!
The Reason I moved to the USVI
I could wake up to this.
Okay, okay. Last St. Thomas photo, I swear. For now.
Todd Needed a Brother
Well, “need” is a strong word. On April 1 (no joke), I adopted another puppy into the family. This is George. Our best guess at a breed? 1/3 Jack Russell, 1/3 Tasmanian Devil, 1/3 Care Bear!
Welcome to the Real World
During my senior year at UNC Charlotte, I started working with the American Heart Association as the Marketing and Communications Intern. For my graduation present – a full-time job offer.
When we moved to St. Thomas, my roommate and I were featured on an episode of House Hunters International, “Strangers Search for Paradise.”
"But Why Did You Come Back?!"
No, I didn’t just come back for the Panthers – but I sure did miss my team! From August to February, my Sundays are for football. #KeepPounding
In the Summer of 2018, my dad and I set out on an epic cross-country adventure. Two weeks, 5200 miles, 11 states. I’d say we conquered the west.
