High energy, upbeat, quick sense of humor, spirit, style, sensitive, kind, giving, sophisticated, intelligent, independent lady. I also am very caring and understanding and am a very good listener. I both love and appreciate life and enjoy its never-ending adventure. At age 54 I got a Global MBA from Duke, traveling and studying in Europe, Asia and South America, with the majority of work over the Internet. I repelled down the Great Wall of China! The week after graduation I got certified to scuba dive in Turks & Caicos. My undergrad degree is in math and philosophy. I like the finer things in life, but at the same time am very down to earth. Me: Great friend, positive attitude, enthusiastic, love to learn & have new adventures, honest, integrity, warm, caring, compassionate, giving, creative, intelligent, perceptive, worldly, liberal, sophisticated and fun. Did I say honest? I love: my amazing kids, animals, most sports, technical gadgets, travel, fun & adventure, affection (giving and receiving), beaches, working out, reading, movies, theater, photography, swimming, and quiet time at home. I love to give back and have done so through Operation Smile. I went to Nicaragua on a team to perform reconstructive surgery on children with cranial, facial deformities. What a reality check! We are so fortunate. I truly believe that humor is the essence of life. A friend wrote this about me: "When Z enters a room, a bright light turns on. Z's unselfish, yet discerning personality is ever present. Z has a particular way of caring for each of us who are lucky enough to call her a friend. Z's intelligence is one of the very first attributes you will encounter when meeting her, but always reinforced by her beautiful smile. Z's friendship is something I cherish and will always seek out in times of need. Important words about a very important person on planet earth!!!".......p.s. I really do LOVE most sports.. go Blue Devils!!!!
