I am friendly, outgoing, intelligent, and have a strong personality, and I love to laugh. I am passionate about my work as well as my personal life, and have decided that perhaps I should "get my feet wet again" in the relationship department. I love to travel, especially to Israel where I have a large family. I am the daughter of parents who were survivors of the Shoah, and I was raised in an Orthodox home. However these days I find myself more traditional than religious. I am a social worker for the State of Washington and work in the Child Abuse and Neglect arena. This has been my life's work, and I have seen the best and worst of humankind as a result. Although I have never had children of my own, I have spent about 25 years "raising everyone else's children." I have a kind heart, and a keen sense of humor. In my spare time I enjoy reading, walking, traveling, shopping, watching stand up comedy, music, and theater.
