The past seven years have been filled with sunshine, self-discovery, yoga, friends, and wine country. This has been an invaluable time in my life where I’ve experienced a lot of personal healing and self-acceptance. Running in the mountains, I learned to let go of love lost. Playing volleyball on the beach, I learning to pursue new opportunities fearlessly. Spending time by the ocean, I learned to give God my perfectionism and anxiety. Santa Barbara, is the most beautiful city in the world to me. It is hard to separate with my first true adult home, but the time has come for me to spread my wings and see what else is out there in the world. As I begin a new chapter of my life in Nashville, I will carry with me the lessons of balance and wellness I learned in this amazing place.
