RPGs have been a common thread in my life for quite a while. This started when I was young, basically a five-year-old who set aside her own entertainment to watch her neighbor's older brother play Final Fantasy IV. That soon morphed into me finding a way to get a Super Nintendo and try other SNES games, such as the beautiful Secret of Mana and the mysterious Illusion of Gaia. I've been playing ever since, though I have branched out into some other game types.

Seeking out new or undiscovered games is one of my favorite things, along with introducing new people to the genre. I love it when I make a recommendation that really hits, and the person finds a game that's deeply enjoyable and moving. Gaming can be a powerful experience.

Games, particularly RPGs, have a distinct way of being intriguing, immersive, and challenging. It is fascinating how that intersects with real life and the real world. I think about that a lot, so gaming and health is my huge area of interest that I hope to investigate day to day in my studies as a future occupational therapist. If I had to pick an RPG class that described me, I would say either a White Mage or a Monk.

I also happen to be a voracious reader with an English degree who has fun poring over writing. If anyone wants to talk about the narrative elements of games, or hilarious linguistic issues, I am always up for that. Proofreading for RPGFan, for me, is a wonderful means to give back to a site I've enjoyed over the years. I expect to learn a lot from the site and look forward to those ongoing adventures and revelations.
