I am a practical, down to earth, no-nonsense woman. My practical/intellectu al side led me to a career as a commercial real estate attorney, but my friends tell me that had I followed by more creative side, I could have been an interior decorator or a restaurateur. I am very dedicated to family, amazing friends, and community, and am passionate about my 3 children – a daughter and 2 sons. My kids sometimes think that I’m too serious, but I certainly enjoy a good laugh. I love to keep busy, travel, do and see new things, exercise (generally the most difficult class possible), listen to live music, read novels (historical novels being my favorite), cook, and be outdoors (especially in the Southwest). I am very new to the dating scene and figured that this may be a good place to begin…Let’s start with a conversation and see what happens next.
