About Me

“My first name is after a mountain, and my middle name is after a lake.”

This is how I introduced myself to substitute teachers as a kid, so they would have a better chance of remembering my name.

Today I’m doing the best I can to follow through with the adventures 5-year-old me dreamt of.

Welcome to Whitney’s Lighthouse– My collection of stories focused on wanderings, ambitions, and celebrating the people who make life good.
