I am an energetic and passionate girl. I consider myself to be open and honest and think that is the key to any relationship. I am a single mom and am having a wonderful time seeing the world from my daughter's perspective. I recently got out of the Army after 10 great years. I am going back to school and working full time but I need challenge. But that just makes me enjoy having unplanned time even more. I love to laugh and try to laugh at myself too. My friends and family are a really important part of my life and keeping up these relationships over long distances and time is not easy but well worth the effort. I am an avid reader and love figuring out why things work (hence why I am pursuing a Masters in Engineering from UW). I love to run and be outdoors and had a blast competing in a team relay last summer. I have lived in the Pacific NW for 6 years and love the never ending discovery of great places, outdoor opportunities, local food, and friendly people.
