As a flight attendant and firefighter fiancé, my life sparks with excitement, joy, and oftentimes stress. In the old days, I obtained my B.A. in Journalism and International Studies, working for the local newspaper as a food reviewer until jetting off to teach English in Japan. These days, I'm writing and flying internationally all while calling the Napa Valley area home. My adventures were grand. Terrifying. Educating. Life lessons acquired in flight that I am excited to share with others before their great "launching," too.
