Hello! I was born in Connecticut but raised in Arizona and consider the West to be my home. I moved back east to attend Boston University, but the winters were too unforgiving, and now I'm back in Arizona. I've been working for Social Security for the past three years as a Bilingual Claims Representative. Although it sounds like I just help people retire, my job is a lot more like social work. It can get pretty intense, so on my time off I love to relax and spend time with friends and family. I'm really close with my family and have a wonderful group of friends . I love doing any outdoor activity, cooking, baking, listening to and playing music, and traveling. I was hesitant to try online dating, but my cousin and her husband met on JDate, and their story inspired me to give this a try.
