I am a positive, upbeat person who believes that you can really accomplish almost anything you set your mind to. I am grounded, strong and self-aware and strive to keep balance in my life. I wear a ring with an engraving that says “It is necessary to live, not simply exist”. It reminds me to live my life and not just exist in it, by getting too caught up in the day-to-day. I think it’s important to pursue your passions and be passionate about those you care about. I have a dynamic personality with a wide variety of interests: I love vacations on sunny beaches and playing outside on rainy days rock concerts and reading a great mystery. I enjoy the arts, but there’s nothing like a great summer day out at the ballpark. I like travel, spontaneous weekend adventures, cooking dinner with friends and just kicking it on a Friday night watching a good movie. All in all, the most important thing to me is to continue to create a life where I am surrounded by people who are smart, open-minded and sincere and who challenge me to be the best that I can be.
