Day 1, surrounded by strangers that would soon become friends!
I conquered my fears very early on here, with a ropes course at PSO!
The beautiful Jacksonville pier, I loved spending sunny afternoons at the beach during my service term
I experienced my first football game!
I spent many a weekend searching for new and interesting wildlife! Seen here, an unsuccessful hunt for an alligator.
I love seeing live music, and Jacksonville provided me many opportunities to see some great bands!
Celebrating the holidays in St. Augustine with lots of laughs!
The Service Project Committee and I planned a successful MLK day health fair at a local school!
Cheering on some of our more athletic members!
Attended multiple trainings which expanded my knowledge of a wide variety of health topics.
During my time in Jacksonville I tried to get out and explore as much of Florida as possible. Here I am at Miami beach on a road trip to South Florida!
On that same road trip we had the opportunity to camp and explore the beauty of the everglades (and I finally saw an alligator, or 50!).
Another road trip brought me to these beautiful springs, what a way to spend Earth Day!
St. Augustine Beach, a beautiful retreat to get away from city life.
The amazing view from the Main St. Bridge. It’s views like this that I’m really going to miss about Jacksonville!
I got to spend my 23rd birthday in Savannah, GA. This picture was at Driftwood Beach, a pit stop along the way!
I have seen so many amazing things and met so many amazing people during my time in Jacksonville with the National Health Corps. I cannot wait for the next chapter of my life, but I know that I will always look back on this year and these memories fondly.
