In August of 2011 I began an educational journey at Drexel University Sacramento.  I had returned back to school in order to pursue a Masters degree in Public Health.  Well, the journey came to an end this past Saturday as my classmates and I graduated.  It was such an exciting day.  My fiance came down for the graduation ceremony and it was wonderful to be able to spend some time with him.  The event was held at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA and was amazing.  I am so glad that I continued my education and I am looking forward to finding a job to put my public health skills to work.

Long time no post

I guess life has been pretty busy.  I just logged in and realized I haven't posted since last November.  That is a long time and so much has happened since.  I'm graduating with my Master in Public Health degree in two weeks.  I am so excited.  I've learned so much and gained so many good friends through the MPH program at Drexel University.  I'd highly recommend the program to anyone who is looking at public health.  The time flew by so quickly.  I received my cap gown and hood in the mail last week and of course I had to try it on.  The hood confused me at first but after a few YouTube videos I figured it out.  Here's a picture of me imagining what graduation might look like.

On an even happier and exciting note, I'm getting married.  My long time friend and now fiance Joseph Harrington and I will be sealed for time and all eternity in the Sacramento, California Temple at the end of this month.  I can't stop smiling I'm so happy.  He proposed on Easter and it has been a whirlwind of activity ever since.  I was finishing my thesis and wedding planning at the same time.  Made for lots of fun and a little stress.  But the thesis is finished and the wedding is planned and all is wonderful.  

I am so excited for all the adventures that are ahead of us.  I don't know where jobs will take us but I'm so excited that we will be able to make the journey together.
