It’s been a great ride….

A little over 2 years ago I got news that changed my life forever. Shortly after that I left my home, my family, my friends and my country to pursue a lifelong dream. Was it worth it? 110%. I haven’t looked back. My time here in California has been incredible. I’ve learned so much, done so many amazing things, met the most wonderful people, and fell in love. It really was a chance of a lifetime to come here and I’m so thankful to everyone who helped make it happen for me.

I cherish the time I have spent in the EATM program and I will honestly miss all the great friends I have made here, all the spectacular animals I got to work with, and the wonderful staff members who have helped me be the best I can be along the way.

Now as one more chapter of my life comes to an end, another very exciting one opens. I got to marry my best friend last week! We met in EATM, were good friends for awhile and then started dating and found out how much we had in common. I can’t imagine not having him in my life. Together we are leaving California and moving to Chicago to start jobs at the same animal facility! (more about the wedding in another post)

But before we do that, we get to travel to Florida this Friday for a week to spend at Disney World for our Honeymoon! Excitement!!!!

So many exciting things to come, so many exciting things have happened over the last 2 years. So happy that I followed my heart here : )
