I am a professional with a masters in urban and regional planning, and a mother of two - one just graduated college and the other is a sophmore. I'm happy in Bethesda, walking my golden retriever, visiting museums, art galleries, crafts shows, and flea markets, listening to music, and going to restaurants, theater, and films. I enjoy visiting exotic places around the world and collecting art when my job takes me overseas, which it does every several months (the trips normally last no more than 2 weeks). My work has taken me to most of the former soviet union countries, around eastern Europe, and most recently, to Bhutan, India, and Bangladesh. I enjoy my work and the travel but would be happier if I found a new man to love.
