Having a true love for life and being the eternal optimist, I always try to see the good in the people and situations affecting me. I value my friendships, my family, my career (I absolutely love the work I do), and my spare time. I have two wonderful grown daughters, and both have 7 year old boys. My older daughter has a beautiful 2 year old girl, and the younger daughter just had another little boy in January. Spending time with the family brings so much joy to my life.
I'm intelligent, kind, caring, respectful, generous, honest (sometimes to a fault), and wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm very outgoing and enjoy being with high-energy people with a similar positive outlook on life.
I have spent my entire career as a Federal employee, all with the Department of the Interior. The first half of my career was as a Geologist (the profession that I have my BS and MS degrees in). More recently I have become a Web Developer (later in life I obtained an Associates degree in Computer Information Systems).
I feel that it is important to be involved in my community and towards that end I have volunteered with local nonprofits that mentors adults with at-risk kids and rescue abused and abandoned dogs and cats. Currently I volunteer as a docent at a local Geology museum.
