About Me
I am a true fan of words and language. The proud owner of three dictionaries, I aspire to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. I love spelling!

Aside from language, I'm a voracious reader, a writer, a runner, a music lover, a dog owner, a big sister, a cellist, a business card collector, a traveler, and a foodie.
