The daughter of my best friend from college once wrote a paper about her personal hero entitiled "RL: A Warm Hearted Inspiring Person"....I was touched and humbled by the fact that she was actually writing about me. My passion lies in touching the lives of others in a positive way, mainly the young people I teach on a daily basis and the large circle of family and friends that I am blessed with. I have always been someone who enjoys all life has to offer and doesn't take anything for granted. I enjoy a variety of both indoor and outdoor activities and am always up for trying new things. One of the things that brings me the most joy and satisfaction is being in a kitchen, as I have a passion for cooking....it also happens to be my vocation and I love passing my passion on to others!! One thing that I am very proud of most recently is that I just had my Bat Mitzvah, which was one of the most memorable experiences I have had in a long time.
