I grew up in Littleton, Colorado and finally escaped at the tender age of 17 as an exchange studnt to France. I attended college in New York City and discovered after graduation that the world of ballet wasn't for me (after 17 years of ballet training).
So what's a former ballerina to do? Travel, of course!
After 6 years in the City, I moved to Sitka Alaska and where I spent 3 summers and 1 winter (with 1 winter in Vieques, Puerto Rico in there). Now I am doing Peace Corps and can't wait to find out where my next place will be.
