She endeavors to search out the adventures available to the working woman and encourages others to be bold, explore, and challenge themselves by challenging their points of view.

She started her website, Pack Often, Pack Light, in 2019, with the hope to inspire other people to journey more in their lifetimes. Dream big; you can do more than you think you can!
