I am a warm, lively,and bright woman who loves to learn from every person I meet. People feel safe and comfortable in my presence. I am a good listener, easy to make laugh, and psychologically astute (hopefully, since I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and have been a psychologist for 25 years). Outside of work interests include swimming for exercise (approximately 5 miles/week), long walks/hikes, good food and wine, listening to live music, movies, travel (both hanging on a beach or interesting cultural experiences in foreign lands). I am great at table tennis and backgammon, and enjoy good competition playing those games.
