So you’re new ’round these parts? No worries. Pull up a chair. I’m really glad you’re here.
When Emily asked me to do a segment of the interview series for Million Mile Secrets, I had a total fan girl moment. “You’re asking me?” I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for years and have amply surrounded myself in all things travel hacking since.
So what is this Not Your Average Gal thing about then, lady?
Glad you asked.
Not Your Average Gal
I’m a little quirky and admittedly also a bit basic (you should see my messy bun). I didn’t take the stereotypical path in life and I think a lot of people can relate to that. This little corner of the interwebs is a place we can all gather to discuss not being average. It’s usually about traveling, but I do have my soapbox moments and I also like to share my entertaining life antidotes. Basically that means when I’ve done something embarrassing, I must share it.
I’m a Michigan transplant living in sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida where the palm trees and grandparents are plentiful. I’m a marketing copywriter at a boutiqueÂ ad agency (marketing jargon) located downtown and work with some kooky colleagues and often kookier clients. Ultimately, I’d love to use my writing and copywriting expertise to work remotely around the world.
My husband, affectionally known here as, the hubster, is an ER physician completing his residency 1400 miles away in Metro Detroit.

I used to be an avid runner until I got injured. Next week is my last Physical Therapy appointment and then WATCH OUT, I may pass you running at a moderately slow pace. I lived and interned in London for a bit after college. I still think London is my favorite city in the world, but Tokyo is surely a close second. I know an obnoxious amount of information about the British Royal Family. I’m a sucker for good beer, good friends and Netflix documentaries. In that order. Spice Girls lyrics were used in a reading at our wedding. Nope, not joking. Discovering new food, new cities and new running shoesÂ make my heart sing.
I like open minds and open hearts.
And I like that you’re here. I hope you stick around. (Very often, we have tequila.)
