I am passionate and outgoing with a focus on time away from work. I have learned that a committment to smelling the roses and "off time" is as or more important than the committment to my profession. I love to plan meals, shop at the food specialty stores and cook from scratch. I enjoy skiing, sports and being active. I really love traveling. I am as comfortable in jeans as I am in suits. I enjoy people and have learned to respect and treat everyone kindly despite having differeing views.I find gratification from helping to solve problems for my loved ones and people I work with. I am a care taker and a nurturer and can be sensitive to a fault. I am self motivated but have learned the balance of work and play. I have learned to say no thankyou to additional work projects if it means working at home or getting home late.I love stories of honest hard working people who find success. I would like to find a partner who had these values too.
