Hi! I am one of your friendly Sixthman Ninjas and I am also one of the newest faces around Sixthman. So if you haven’t met me yet, I look forward to seeing you on board sometime! Until then, here is a little bit about me!
Being born and raised in Southwest Florida, the beach is an inseparable part of my soul. Napping on my blanket (and I mean full on snoring and I don’t care who can hear me), under my umbrella, with SPF properly applied would be my profession if that were even possible.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, who I met in marching band. I don’t care how much that outs us as complete dorks. We have been together exactly half of my life so far; I realize this is basically crazy talk. But when you win the lottery, you don’t say, “no thanks, you keep the money, I’ll just take the next scratch off ticket, please.”
Last year, I got to travel with my husband and 2 of our best friends to Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. Not stay-in-a-lodge-and-take-pictures-from-the-boardwalk travel; hike-for-miles-with-30-pounds-of-gear-on-you-back-and-love-every-minute-of-it travel. I can’t wait for the next adventure! Taking the opportunity to see the beauty of the true wilderness in our world is something I hope everyone will do sometime in his or her life (even if you just take a picture from the boardwalk).
My previous jobs for the past 5 years have included working with animals from rats to dogs to elephants. I know how glamorous that sounds, and in fact it is incredibly rewarding work, which I loved so very much. But full disclaimer: for every 1 hour I spent doing what you are imagining I did (playing with animals); I spent at 3 or 4 hours scooping poop, cleaning and lifting heavy things like cat litter or hay bales. I still loved it, but I don’t want to paint an inaccurate picture.
I believe very much in the importance of using one’s talents/time to help others in some way. From Pit Bulls to Poodles, in the past 4 years, I (with the support and help of my husband) have fostered/rescued somewhere around 25 dogs. For most of that time I had 4 dogs of my own, plus the foster pooches. It was sometimes chaotic, it was messy, but it has been my way to help.
Now you know a little of this and a little of that about me. Except for 2 more random, but important facts: I HATE peanutbutter (this hatred rivals Jill Mac’s hatred of gum and Barb’s hatred of birds) and I LOVE to sing along to the radio, even though I definitely don’t have the voice for it. That’s it for now, most likely the next time you will hear from me is when you call/email/live chat the office to book or ask questions about your favorite cruise!
