I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia. My family and I immigrated to the US in 1991. My two grown daughters have graduated from UW and live on their own. I am educated, caring and easy going. I lead an active lifestyle and exercise regularly. I enjoy traveling, the arts, as well as outdoor activities. I also like to spend time with my two grandsons. Before my retirement (May 1st 2015) I used to jog 10 miles a day on my way to and from work. Now I have to jog on my own time (90min or more a day). I also will be able to travel without time limitation. My first voyage will be to NYC for about 3 weeks. "You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough".
