I'm a fun, friendly, joyful woman with a NY sense of humor who loves my large family, friends, and career serving others. Born and raised in NYC, I really enjoy my life in DC, though I'm always up for a NY bialy! I'm a former journalist and have a natural drive to ask questions and communicate openly and honestly. I've lived all over the world (New York, North Carolina, Colorado, Seattle, and Jerusalem) and love to travel and learn about different cultures. I still try to visit at least one new place per year, whether it’s as “close” as Florida or as far as South Africa. When I’m not gallivanting around the world, I'm always up for adventure: Two weddings to attend in one night? No problem! You’ll find me dancing at both.
