Welcome to GuideThisWay!
A small tour about my life as a blind young adult trying to do the adulting thing, life, and the many adventures and segments that make me, well…. me. Along with support and help of amazing content creators that I get to call my friends, a fluffy golden retriever who would like nothing more than to get cuddles, and my wild ideas for insane projects, I truly hope you decide to stick around for the ride. And please, no flash photography!
Full of sass, anxiety, sarcasm, confidence, and enough introvertedness, expect everything from discussions on dog pooping habits to accessibility in technology, higher education, or the innermost thoughts of a person who claims to contain multitudes. We truly hope you stick around for the ride.
Special Thanks must go to….
A special thanks has to go to my close friends and family who have supported me through my journey as a blind young adult. From acquiring my first guide dog, moving across the state, (and back again), acknowledging my anxiety and learning how to deal with it, and so much more. Thanks go to Brandon, Jenn, and Meka, who have checked on me everyday and made sure I was still grounded. To Simon and Mia, for being loving human beings who extended their kindness when I felt at my lowest, to my nephew and niece, who taught me to be an aunt and to love unconditionally, laugh loudly, and all about dinosaurs and Frozen. To Dash and Zoe, our furry and newest additions to our little family, for being gentle and willing to cuddle when I needed it most. Last, but absolutely not least, to my fiance and future husband, for being my better half. For being willing to fly down to meet me and who pushed for us to be together when we were 2700.6 miles apart. I have found myself on a new crazy adventure with someone who completes me, and I couldn’t ask for anything more. You found me when I felt completely alone and you didn’t try to fix me; instead, you guided me, loved me, held me when all my pieces were falling apart. I love you.
