Hello, lovely. My name is KaSandra, but you can call me KaS. Before you ask, yes, it is actually spelled that way. I suppose my mom wanted to make sure my life would be interesting and that I’d always have a story to tell. Well, Ma, you got your wish.
When I was 18, I landed a crazy opportunity to go work at Walt Disney World for a few months. It was there that I met some of my best friends from all over the country and world, and I learned how easy it was to travel if I just put my mind to it and maintained a solid work ethic. My little Kentucky heart was officially set on working its way around the world.
And so it did.
When I really started my journey to living and working abroad, I was also trying to figure out a way to deal with life after a series of traumatic events. While I wanted to share my journey, I wanted to be sure no one got the impression that my life was all puppies and rainbows. I wanted people to know you could balance a life of badassery and humility simultaneously; the two are not mutually exclusive.
And so, I went on to live and work in a manor house in England, meet and fall in love with a human I grew up only 40 miles away from yet never crossed paths with, eloped, and moved to Australia to start our first year of marriage. A lot happened between those events, but that's the coolest and most condensed version I can give.
I'm officially living stateside again with my ginger-bearded better half, and navigating the entrepreneurial world as a photographer, writer, and brand message strategist. (*Finally puts PR degree to good use.*) I have a huge heart and curiosity for sustainability and social responsibility, so it's likely you'll find me writing more about that in the days to come.
If you wanna butter me up, you can buy me a cup of coffee, send me a hand-written note, invite me to a yoga class, or reach out to see how we can work together.
My mission is simply to empower you to go out and work for the life you've always wanted in the most responsible and ethical way possible, while never taking a moment of it for granted. If you'd like to look like a badass while doing so, hit me up. I know my way around a camera.
