The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about helping others. At work, I take pride in caring for my team, working hard, and leading by example. In my personal life, I love to adopt a family for Christmas and save all year to give them what they'll need to have a safe, warm, happy holiday season. Now that I'm finally done with school, I've started a new volunteer position with Head Start.
I typically spend my leisure time
I have two dogs and I love to take them to the park or for long walks when it's warm out. I also enjoy cooking, working out, swimming, reading, dancing, crafty things like scrapbooking, live music & sports, sleeping, planning events for others, watching movies, and shopping (mainly for my adopt-a-family), among about a million other things.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone genuine. I want him to be real with me, with himself, and with other people. I want us to be comfortable together and I want to be able to count on what I see and feel. I hope that we'll have endless things to teach each other and to laugh about.
The first thing people notice about me
The first impression I give off is that I'm shy but nice. I generally like to take things in and see what I have to offer.
The last book I read and enjoyed
There are two, actually. Six Sigma For Everyone (I'm trying to keep my MBA fresh) and The Magic of Encouragement, because for my new volunteer position, I just got assigned to work with a little boy who has major self-esteem issues.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My friends, family & faith
- That I'm a happy person
- The opportunities and experiences I've had, and will have.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Sometimes people have a tendency to think I'm intimidating, because I'm very professional at work and very driven and confident with things I want to do outside of work. I wish they would see that I'm really just trying to do my best, and that I'm looking to bring out the best in others as well.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm kind of a mismatch for Colorado because I'm not big on camping or extreme sports, however, I do like being outside (i.e. park, sports, concerts, backyard patio.) I've travelled overseas and studied abroad, and now I mainly like to be close to home (because I have dogs), even though there are still a few places on my wish list, including Greece, more time in Italy, and something tropical and gorgeous. For me, great communication is a must-have. I'm a good fit for someone who would really want to include me in his life by talking to me about lots of different things.
