The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about animals. I have two cats plus I volunteer at a local animal shelter with dogs and cats. I often foster kittens... they make my heart smile. I'm also very passionate about my career. I have accomplished many things in my nine years as an attorney and want to continue down a successful path. I just recently opened my own practice. Scary yet exciting!
I typically spend my leisure time
In my spare time, I enjoy socializing with friends, spending time at the lake in the summers, trying new restaurants, watching family guy, and hitting the gym.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who makes me happy. It's just that simple, right?! Regardless of what you do for work, what you do in your spare time, how you view the world, your morals and values, or your political beliefs, we are all looking for the EXACT same thing... happiness. We all define that word differently and we all go about searching for it differently. I value honesty, intelligence, kindness, ambition, and loyalty. I'm looking for someone to make me laugh and for someone to tell me it will all be ok when I cry. I want a partner in crime to spend my days with... from eating dinner, to waking up together, to traveling the world.
The first thing people notice about me
I have been told that the first thing people notice about me is how I'm energetic and bubbly. I like to put a smile on people's faces... including my own! Life and work are so serious and stressful sometimes. If you don't find a way to laugh and lighten up... you won't get out alive!
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read is called The Serial Killer Whisperer. It is the true story of a boy who suffered a traumatic brain injury and his life was never the same. He grew up with many problems but managed to turn his life into something positive. He began writing to serial killers in prison out of curiosity and many responded with information that they had never told authorities, which led to many victims being discovered and closure for their families. It was really fascinating.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my friends-they are my family.
- I am thankful for my health. Sounds cheesy, but it's true.
- I am thankful for French fries and cheesecake!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
When people find out I'm an attorney, there are certain stereotypes they automatically attach to me... not all of which are true. (1) All lawyers are smart. Not totally true, but I am, so thank you. (2) All lawyers are rich. NEGATIVE. I do okay, but I don't live in a mansion with a butler, and I don't own numerous Italian sports cars. (3) All female attorneys are bitches. Again, really? How bout you get to know me before you judge my personality based on what I happen to do for a living?!
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Energetic, Intelligent, Passionate
A little more about me
You wanna know more about me? Hmmmm... I'm loud, feisty, and fun. I'm a social butterfly but I also love a night at home watching TV or a movie and ordering a pizza. On that note, I love food... sushi, Chinese, Thai, pizza, brunch... Yum! I want to see more of the world but I would prefer to do that with someone. I'm a caring person with a huge heart. I go out of my way to do nice things for people and make them feel special... I write poems and send handwritten cards for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, weddings, or if I know someone is having a bad day. How people treat others speaks volumes about them... in my humble opinion.
