My friends would describe me as outgoing, funny, smart, and witty, someone who is equally comfortable in running shoes and sweatshirts as I am in heels and dresses. I'm shy at first, but tend to warm up quickly to people who make me laugh.
After growing up in Illinois, college in Ohio and grad school at IU, I left snowy winters and the Midwest and moved to North Carolina to take a job in higher ed. Deciding I really loved snow in October and scraping my car before going to work, I moved to Michigan and work for MSU. I've seen Tom Izzo on campus.
I like running, cooking for my friends, traveling, going to concerts (small ones with unknown bands in dive bars are my favorites), and finding a West Wing or 30 Rock appropriate reference for almost any life situation. Love Chicago sports teams, and am rooting for MSU teams because they supply my paycheck. I've tried hot yoga and hate it.
My family is really important to me, and though they live in Illinois and Indiana, I talk to my sister almost daily. I hate bad grammar and bad spelling. The two programmed radio channels in my car are NPR and country.....so there's that. My mom doesn't get it either.
