Personal Interests/Hobbies

While the move to Yakima is quite the departure from my previous life in the cosmopolitan city, I am excited to live in a part of the world with unique character and personality, that still remains supportive to diversity. I enjoy anything that involves me being a social creature: e.g. eating/restaurants, dinner parties, movies, the obligatory gym session followed by the welcomed restorative yoga class. I am an avid consumer of pop culture of all kinds. But most importantly, I love to sing – a lot! If I you see me walking down the street with headphones, belting at the top of my lungs and not paying attention to the world around me – except to avoid an occasional telephone pole or automobile – please don’t be offended!
