I am a 54-year old divorced woman with a great zest for life, a deep sense of curiosity and many wide-ranging interests. I started my own business about 10 years ago after 20 years spent in corporate management positions . I have a passion for education and my work and philanthropic focus follows that passion. I'm a Yankee by birth but lived in California and New York for about 10 years each. I try to spend time in both places, which I love, and now that my kids are older I've made a commitment to traveling to a new country each year. I'm an avid reader, a trusted friend and confidant. I enjoy good wine and cooking. I have a deep-rooted Jewish identity and grew up in a kosher home but have a less observant lifestyle myself. My life is enriched by strong ties to family and friends but I'm ready to begin dating to explore relationships that can bring me joy, laughter, companionship and love.
