I am a loving, compassionate, and affectionate woman who has learned to live life to its fullest. Each day of life provides a new journey, and so I have learned to enjoy many of life's pleasures; the warmth of the sun, traveling near and far, fine dining, and even the simplicity of an engrossing book. I love to laugh, and feel I have a great sense of humor. I enjoy having fun, and try to do so in many aspects of my life. I am a great communicator and an even better listener, and therefore have a great passion for my volunteer position where I work with cardiac surgical patients and their families.
