I am a girl who lives to travel. I love exploring far away and near new locales just as much as I love tried and true weekend jaunts to places that feel like home. No matter the destination, I'm all about making memories to last a lifetime and learning along the way!

They have a strong LD program and more importantly they offered a degree in what Katherine wants to study - speech therapy. Katherine wants to be a speech therapist with a focus in Spanish.
We were all set to leave RDU at 6pm, fly to Baltimore then on to Providence and take the 45 min uber. When I went to check us in, Baltimore to Providence had been cancelled. We texted Jeff and Kelly and told them if there was another flight option, great, if not, we wer…
