The one thing I am passionate about...
One thing I am very passionate about is wildlife & wetlands conservation - that is why I am an environmental scientist (and yes, wildlife conservation includes hunting, and I am good with that). The other is raising my daughter to be a loving, generous, considerate person.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like reading; watching the birds, deer, rabbits, skunks, and other wildlife in my yard; and doing crafts/watching movies on Netflix with my daughter. I also take in an occasional symphony or ballet and frequent the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Recently I started going to the gym twice a week, and I can tell I am stronger already!
The most influential person in my life has been
An honest, fun loving, affectionate person who understands the value of give and take in a relationship. Someone who enjoys the same things I do--nature, reading, music, museums, new experiences...
The first thing people notice about me
My bright smile :-))
The last book I read and enjoyed
Breaking Nova and Saving Quinton, first two books in a series about two young people who love each other to the core. They both get into drugs because they deeply hurt from past events. Nova gets out of that life after 1 summer, but can't forget about Quinton. After a year, she decides to find him and try to help him, which is a really scary experience for her. I have to read the third book to find out how everything turns out!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my daughter, who is a really good kid and keeps me young.
- good health.
- having work that means something to me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a good sense of humor. Since I am somewhat quiet, only people who know me well see it.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Hard Working, Intelligent, Sweet
A little more about me
I am shy until I get to know someone. Once I get to know you, I am more open and affectionate. If I commit to something/someone, I'm in it 100%; I don't do things half$$.
