Breast Cancer Awareness

It’s a busy month.  My private practice business (Ignite, LLC) has partnered with another local company, Chacha’s Boutique to make these handmade copper bracelets to raise money for breast cancer.  Next week we will be producing a video on my YouTube channel talking about this specific fundraiser as well as how to cope with a new diagnosis for those with breast cancer and their loved ones.  Folks can purchase either bracelet on Etsy for $15 and there are two other options for personalization as well.  Proceeds will go to OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute.  Pre-order your’s now and they will start shipping out October 1st in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  IMGP4760

Trip to Florida


Manju & Shivank

Totally forgot that I had photos to post from my trip to Florida. I visited a couple friends in Gainesville and was able to go to Sarasota to the number 1 rated beach in the US! Siesta Key beach is beautiful (oh and I brought home a sunburn). Was totally bummed my good camera was not fixed in time for my trip so my Canon PowerShot A590 had to come out of storage. We also traveled to Blue Springs, which I think had the most teal blue water I have ever seen. As well as two turtles who were about a foot and a half in diameter.

It was an amazing trip and I got to cross off a bucket list item (meeting Shivank for the first time). Clearest teal blue water I've ever seen.

Smokey Oregon

We’ve had our share of forest fires this summer with this beautiful dry Oregon sun. Have been covering the social worker at the Oregon Rehabilitation Center this week. Today I got to park on the very top of the parking structure where I took this image. Unfortunately my Pentax K-x is still in the shop, will have to pick it up this weekend.
