The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about the world around me. Learning new things, challenging myself, being kind and compassionate. I don't have children but that doesn't mean I don't like them. I get to work with rascally wonderful teens full time! Oh, and anything furry or wooly is a friend of mine, I'm definitely an animal lover.
I typically spend my leisure time
Exploring...the local farmer's market, a body of water in a kayak, short weekend adventures or long round the world treks. Renovating/rehabbing things. Hanging out with my horse.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is lighthearted, compassionate and loyal. I find a partner most interesting when he is confident with his life and doesn't need someone else to make it complete. I am the same way. We can thoroughly enjoy each other but are not dependent on each other for all things.
The first thing people notice about me
I am straight forward and insightful (I'm told). I dress for the business at hand, if we're going for a hike I'm not showing up all dolled up and in heels. Some people think I'm funny.
The last book I read and enjoyed
David Finch, Journal of Best Practices. A local author who was diagnosed with Aspergers and embarked on a journey to become a better husband while understanding his unique perspective on things. I work in a therapeutic setting and David's quirky insight was really interesting to me.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Feeling balanced and as mindful as possible
- Being in a good place in life (work, community, me)
- Fresh air, sunshine, coffee
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am athletic and adventurous even if I don't look the part at first glance. I probably would have made a good frontier woman or cowboy (or outlaw?) in another century.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Genuine, Kind, Loyal
A little more about me
I am a rural mountain girl at heart. I am a little bit country, it's fine if you are a little bit rock-n-roll. But, I also have an art degree and enjoy galleries and the theater. At first glance I pretty much could be a Subaru commercial...Oh, and I like big mutts, I cannot lie.
