The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my children. They are the love of my life. I have enjoyed my work as a clinical psychologist for over 20 years. I currently am focused on mindfulness and positive psychology. Yoga and meditation help center and calm me. I currently have great fun playing tennis about 4 to 5 days a week. I also like many outdoor activities: I like to ski, swim, surf, bike, hike, camp, and Kayake. I like adventures and traveling. I've just returned from a two weeks white water rafting trip through the Grand Caynon. It was exciting running 160 ripids, and calming connecting with the river and the earth.
I typically spend my leisure time
