I consider myself a very fortunate person. I have two daughters (8 and 6) who amaze me everyday, work that I love, a family I adore (although they are back East), and wonderful friends. In terms of describing my personality -- I would say that I am intelligent, optimistic, independent, caring and have a dry sense of humor. Camping (tent only) and hiking are passions. I love live music and NPR -- "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" is a huge favorite. I can lose track of time sitting on top of a mountain or wandering happily around Home Depot.
