The one thing I am passionate about...
I really enjoy remaining active and exploring new areas. I love to plan quick day trips and meander out to the coast or mountains often on a whim. Hiking, running, cycling and skiing are often included in these adventures.
I typically spend my leisure time
I typically spend time with my running group or training with my cycling team. I also love meeting friends for wine or dinner. And an evening in may include cooking, a nice glass of wine, and a decent movie or novel.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am really looking for someone who complements me as a person. I'd really like to meet someone who has similar interests, but diverse enough to enrich each other's lives. I would like to meet someone who is comfortable in their own skin and enjoys making the most out of every situation.
The first thing people notice about me
I really try to make myself appear approachable. First impressions are incredibly important, especially when I greet a patient for the first time. I usually introduce myself with a warm smile and engage them with a kind glance to smooth over any interaction.
The last book I read and enjoyed
My tastes change frequently. Most recently I finished a book by Dan Ariely alled " The Upside of Irrationality", which explores both the negative and positive effects of our irrationalities in many facets of our lives. It's in the vein of Malcolm Gladwell's novels. I also thoroughly enjoyed my latest fiction read, "Water for Elephants", a fantastic love story set under the big top.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A close group of friends who are closer to me than sisters and have been through some of the most difficult times and amazing times of my life.
- A fantastic, fulfilling profession that I am passionate about and continues to challenge me on a daily basis
- The ability to remain healthy and active doing things that I love, including running, cycling, skiing, hiking and adventures.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a tendency to think out loud. For me it's a matter of processing my thoughts. However, if I am around someone new, I try to filter my thoughts more carefully, so it takes me time to feel comfortable and expressive around new people until I have a chance to understand my audience.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm up for an adventure. I truly enjoy my life and would really like to meet someone who would join me in exploring this amazing life we are living now. I love my career as a physical therapist and count myself as very fortunate to have so many amazing and caring friends. I don't sit still for long and prefer to be outside whenever possible.
