Hello, everyone! My name is Brittany. I am a 28-year-old Western New Yorker, dog mom, former marketing professional, current nursing assistant at a local hospital, nursing student, daughter, sister, volunteer, brand ambassador, and creative, old soul. Phew, I know. I can barely keep up with myself!
When I’m not chasing my two energetic pups around and studying for nursing exams, you can find me obsessively organizing anything I can get my hands on, practicing my photography skills, decorating and searching for the perfect pieces to add to my (future) home, testing out new products, and making the most of where I am at the moment.
How did I come up with the name Roaming Heart?
My inspiration for the name of my blog was born out of my passion to try new things and adventure to new places. If you would have asked me ten years ago what I wanted out of life, I would have told you hands down, move to NYC to pursue any creative endeavor. Spoiler – my life turned out completely different. I graduated from St. Bonaventure University with my BA and MA in marketing in 2012. My study abroad experiences to Oxford University and Ireland while in college gave me the courage I needed to pack up and reluctantly move away. From 2012 to 2016, the Washington, DC area became home. I tried my hand in political and legal services marketing, but my heart at the time was in Louisiana and I was dying to get down there and end the distance in a relationship. From 2016 to May 2018, I traded in my “hey” for “y’all” and became a Southerner, on top of completely changing my career path and beginning nursing school. I loved living in Louisiana, but my heart called me back to the Buffalo area. Life often comes full circle. Not only did I make my way back home, but along the way I learned a lot about myself and trusted my five-year-old dream of wanting to be a nurse. Sometimes we have to take the scenic route to give ourselves the time to find out who we are, thus the “roaming” in Roaming Heart. And of course, the heart refers to my need to put my soul into everything I do from nursing, to decorating, dog-momming, shopping, you name it!
