I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in secondary English education and Psychology. It is my true passion to be a lifelong learner. My first step towards that goal is to begin my master's work as a K-12 reading specialist (also at GVSU). One day I aspire to get my PhD in education. Also because I love to learn, I love to read. You won't find me without a book and a list of what to read next. Currently, there are 500+ books on my "to read" page. PS. feel free to add me on goodreads.com!
I love to TRAVEL.
If I could, I would spend every penny to my name on travel. I have been to Paris, the Netherlands, Amsterdam, London, Brussels, Germany, Nicaragua, and have also seen much of the U.S. One day I hope to travel to Greece, South America, and China or Japan.

I love my FAMILY.
I have the most wonderful family and I love to spend time with them - they are all my best friends and the strongest support system. I have THREE brothers that I am very close with! I also have two very rambunctious golden retrievers whom I absolutely adore. And next summer, I am getting married! At this time next year I'll be Mrs. Curley.
