When she’s not staring at her phone and reading social media captions for the thousandth time, you can find her: reading a book in a shallow section of the river (slathered in sunscreen, of course), enjoying a craft beer at a local brewery, baking decadent cupcakes in her kitchen, or knitting in a cozy pile of blankets.
