Geanna Culbertson adores chocolate chip cookies, watching Netflix in pajamas, and the rain. Of course, in her case, the latter is kind of hard to come by. As her dad notes, “In California, we don’t have seasons, we have special effects.” On the flip side, she is deeply afraid of ice skating and singing in public. Although, she forces herself to do both on occasion because she believes facing your fears can be good for you. During the week Geanna lives a disciplined, yet preciously ridiculous lifestyle. She gets up each day at 5:00 a.m. to train. Goes to work where she enjoys a double life as a kid undercover in a grown-up world. Then comes home, eats, writes, and watches one of her favorite TV shows. On weekends, however, Geanna’s heart, like her time, is completely off the leash. Usually she’ll teach martial arts at her local karate studio, pursue yummy foods, and check out whatever’s new at her fav stores like Banana Republic. To summarize, she’ll wander, play, disregard the clock, and get into as many shenanigans as possible.
