I'm a passionate woman who loves nature, meangingful conversations and laughing! Working with children as an elementary school counselor brings me joy by allowing me to make a difference in their lives..I have a zest for living and learning through my many travels which have included Asia, Latin America &, Europe. I have a great respect for variety as reflected in my love of many types of people music, dance, foods and cultures. On the flip side, I'm deeply spiritual, enjoy yoga and meditation and quiet time in nature. Come to think of it, everything you can do inside is better outside! I'm independent, politically to the left, believe in honest communication and look for the silver lining in all situations. I thrive on new ideas, growth and change.
