I enjoy a busy life with lots of family, friends and interests. I love to meet new and interesting people and to try new things and am always up for an adventure. I like to explore new neighborhoods, cuisine, culture, museums, cities, etc. I think I am a happy, high energy person who looks for the same in others. I also am outgoing and do not hesitate to talk to strangers. Everyone has a story to tell. I have been told that I make people I am with feel comfortable. I am independent in many ways but enjoy companionship. Also, Jewish identity is a big part of my life.
I feel strongly that it is important to give back to the community whether mine or others' and I sometimes think I get more out of it than what I give. Last summer my kids and I went to work in a refugee village in rural Nicaragua setting up makeshift eye clinics and assisted the eye doctors. It was hot there and hard work but a very satisfying "vacation."
