“During the warmer months, my family and I are always outside keeping busy. It feels good to work together and accomplish things. Growing up, my dad and I were constantly out in nature; ATVing, hiking, fishing, or kayaking. It not only helped me wash away stress but allowed us to have a closer relationship.  I feel that I have kept this mindset into my adult life. Whenever life gets stressful I can take a walk or go for a bike ride and come back feeling ready to cease the day.  I try to incorporate the PassageWay into every day, to live a happy, balanced life.”

“I am grateful for the activities that I am capable of doing outdoors and for the peace that nature brings me. I chose the career path that I did so that I could provide services to those that may be in need. Lastly, my third favorite PassageWay element is Spirit because I believe strongly in valuing ones own values and the values of others.”
