Greetings WA community! My name is Jason and this is my girlfriend Ciara. First, a little bit of my background. I grew up and lived most of my life in Northern California, spending most of my time skimboarding, surfing, training in jiu jitsu and spinning records when I wasn't at school or work. I spent the last 15 years as a stationary engineer in a hospital environment and just recently left my position to be with Ciara in North Carolina so we could start a new chapter in our lives together.
My name is Ciara and am so lucky to have met such a sweet spirit like Jason! A little about me: I graduated with an M.S. in Earth and Environmental Science from Tulane University in 2014. Upon graduation, I've worked for a couple of consulting firms, and was very over-worked and underpaid. The kind of work these firms had me doing was barely making a difference in the lives of people and the environment. So I left, and since leaving the corporate world, I became attracted to the education field (tutoring math and science). I've been so much happier ever since! My goal in life is to use my education and knowledge to bring awareness to the community on issues like coastal erosion, sea level rise, and climate change. We also have launched our own skimboarding company, CZ Skim and Surf, with an environmental focus. Check us out at: www.czskimandsurf.com. I always look forward to learning more and envision WA as a means to fuel our passions!
We look forward to working and growing with all of our new WA family as well as helping and learning in any way we can. Peace, good health and prosperity to all of you!
