Oregon & Washington - 2022

I was looking to reconnect with myself. To rediscover my passions for travel & photography. Yearning to feed that innate sense of wonder and discover something new.

I’ve been to the west coast before, but this was my first time in the Continental US Pacific Northwest. My roadtrip went from Portland - through the Colombia River Gorge, up to Washington and down the entire Oregon Coast. If you’d like to know my itinerary - send me a message and I’ll be happy to share!

What I discovered on this roadtrip was a sense of purpose and direction. It was here that Always Onward Co. was born.

Cossayuna Lake & Lake George - 2023

It was Memorial Day weekend and it was the first time I was really able to rest. In January - I had separated from my spouse and instead of processing the grief, I jumped right into work.

I had full intention on exploring the area, going hiking and kayaking. But once I got up to the lake house cottage - most of those plans went right out the window. I just couldn’t bring myself to get out and be that active. What I truly needed was rest.

It was here that I really discovered what a mental rest is and how important it is to just re-group. I was able to read, journal, reflect, cook, have dance parties all to myself. It was here that I started to really discover what my values and principles are.
