A Little About Me..

I'm a vivacious, super-bubbly comedian at heart! I love making people laugh and I try to see the glass half full rather than half empty! I'm a recent law school graduate (May 2013) and I just took the NY/NJ bar exams in July and now I'm getting ready for the BIGGEST change of my life! I'm having Gastric Sleeve surgery on 9/2/2014 and I'm super EXCITED and Anxious at the same time! But, I've put my faith in God because he always Delivers!

What Else..

I was hit head-on by a drunk driver two months before I graduated law school and as a result I sustained some pretty serious injuries to my knees (both were cut completely open) but by the Grace of God I survived. I have a few scars that remind me of that night but I choose to see the positive.. I'm alive and so grateful to have been given a second chance at life!

Why am I having surgery..

Well.. I've excelled at everything I put my mind to but my weight has been an issue since I was a kid. I lost my sister in 2008 and then my mother in 2011. Those were devastating loses for my family and I.. so I've decided that WLS is the best choice for me because I want to live.

I'm a work in progress so stay tuned! :P
