I love classical music especially (also old jazz and folk somewhat), sing in choirs and go to as many concerts as possible. I enjoy theatre and occasional films. I returned to school after raising two kids. My first degree was nursing and worked for some years as an RN. The next one was an MPH at Hebrew U. Medical school. I lived in Israel for 10 years where I studied and worked and research. When Ireturned to the States in 1999 to work some more I became a monitor for pharmaceutical clinical trial. I am energetic and youthful and active. Other activities and interests include gardening, choral singing, walking, bird watching, reading and textile art. I'm retired and give music/piano lessons to supplement Uncle Sam's monthly stipend. I live with my dog, Stella and my cat (Malka, Queen of Qats). I am a positive, happy and independent person. I love my life but would love some companionship on some of the above endeavors.
