I am always looking to grow-people, places, events, ideas, and living in NYC has given me that opportunity. Working with children with special needs has been very rewarding and I feel fortunate to have connected with so many great specialists, teachers, and families. Riverside and Central Park are close by and I try not to pass up an opportunity to play tennis or toss a frisbee with friends (lots of running always guaranteed.....succe ssful throws/shots less so :)). I love to discover new restaurants, hear live music, read at my favorite coffee shop, or check out a new exhibit or lecture. And living in proximity to family and friends has been important to me. My sister lives in the city and my parents in New Jersey. My other siblings come up from DC quite a bit and my friends from different stages of life seem to gravitate to New York at one time or another. But I’m always up for meeting someone new.
