2 years ago today I drove myself and my belongings onto a ferry headed for “America”. I had been living and working on the island of Martha’s Vineyard for 7 years, year-round and I was (finally) moving away. The job and the island were always supposed to be temporary – a few years of radio experience and I would move on. I never anticipated that I would stay for so long, that I would learn and grow so much, or that I would meet so many incredible people.

So much has happened in the past 2 years. I’m proud of myself for helping my family in a time of need, for helping my hometown with a new spot for live music, for getting myself back on stage (and landing a dream role!), and for landing a dream job.
I tend to push myself quite a bit, but I also know it’s important to step back at times and give myself some credit. I want to remind you to do the same.
