Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. I am a very caring, compassionate and empathetic person. I am also as goofy as they come. I work as a middle school special education teacher in an urban school district. I'm drawn to all things universal and humanitarian. I love to travel. I like the city but I also love being way out in the middle of nowhere. I've lived in both types of places and places in between. I love the outdoors and going to hear good, live music. I like independent film and art, in general. I really love to write. It's important for me to have some type of creative outlet, like writing, painting, or photography. I love yoga. I feel very strongly about the value of real, productive and meaningful communication and healthy conflict resolution.
