Have Someone in Your Corner

For me, working out is an emotionally charged activity. I’ve always felt like I’m weak, clumsy and far from athletic. I get frustrated easily and have been known to break down in tears in the gym when I’m not meeting the expectations I’ve set for myself. So, when I came to Denver I decided to … More Have Someone in Your Corner

Become a Quitter

Everything has felt like a rollercoaster lately. Stress: missed my flight to Vegas –> Fun: Vegas room upgrade!! –> Stress: cut my foot on glass –> Fun: VEGAS (in general) –> Stress: panic attack on flight home from vegas –> Fun: great 1st day of orientation …the list goes on. I always forget how crazy … More Become a Quitter

A Captured Heart

Recently, I had two of my best friends come to visit me in Phoenix. The last day they were here, we had planned a sunrise hike to the peak of Camelback Mountain – a notoriously hard but very popular trail.

Who’s excited for my first post in over a month?? 🙂 I’m coming to you from 30,000 feet above the ground right now. I have a weird thing about flying. I am PETRIFIED of heights – like I can just look at a picture taken from the edge of a cliff and my palms start … More Mark 10:28


Sometimes things move fast in the travel nurse world. A week ago I had no idea where I’d be headed next, and today I signed a contract putting me in Phoenix, AZ for January through the beginning of April. AND I’ll be back at a teaching hospital (hallelujah – love me some baby residents). Of … More Surprise!

Love on the Brain

I noticed the last few posts have been total buzzkills so I thought I’d talk a little about the wonderful world of DATING. Anyone who knows me knows that I love dates. I love meeting new people, I love the potential for a new friendship/romantic relationship and I love free food/movies/drinks/anything. When I started my travel … More Love on the Brain
