After I took a spill down some hard stairs and banged up my elbow, I took my sling off and went surfing.

I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
