About The Great Wide Open
The epitome of the New York gal on the go, I was systematically crossing accomplishments off my professional bucket list with amazing, and now I realize alarming, speed. Then one day I realized I had nothing left on that list. The ultimate planner needed a new plan…or for once in my life, an insane amount of change! A new city, a new career and suddenly the world is my oyster. I’m now making my bucket list up as I go along, trying new activities and adventures to discover what I’m really passionate about. Instead of trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life…I’m enjoying figuring out what to do right now. These are the rants and raves of a (mostly) rehabilitated Type A exploring life’s possibilities (for once).
