Describe you as a couple in about 15 words or phrases: crazy animal lovers, curious, goofy, science nerds, determined, salsa dancers
What is your story?: Christian and I met while volunteering for the Red Cross in Ecuador. Christian was serving as the medical head that day and I was just another confused gringa volunteer. Before the chaos started, Christian and I shared a short conversation where we quickly realized our mutual love for animals. He was a fourth year veterinary student working at an animal shelter and I was a crazy animal lover looking for a shelter to volunteer at. It was KISMET. Unfortunately we did not share any more convos that day as I was whisked away on an ambulance run with the extremely important job of ringing the siren.
Our first "date" was on my 24th birthday when he accompanied a group of crazy gringos on a party bus around Quito. Surprisingly, he stuck around after this belligerent event and that's when I knew he was a keeper. And the rest, as they say, is history.......
