Where are your favorite places to hang out in Evansville and Newburgh?
I spend a lot of my free time at home sitting by the pool or reorganizing my room. I love spending time with my friends, especially when we go on adventures like browsing new boutiques in Newburgh, learning new self-care practices such as utilizing a gua sha and dry brushing (ancient Chinese techniques), or meditating. I also love trying new local eateries and am extremely excited to visit Second Language’s Patissere.
What are you looking forward to this summer?
I am beyond excited to be here at Evansville Living this summer in order to gain real-life media experience and learn more about the industry, especially in a local environment. I am also excited to have the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles a few times over the summer, especially going to the beach and going on new adventures with friends and family out there, as well as attending the long-awaited return of the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago.
