I'm also a romantic deep down. If anything, I blame John Hughes and the 80s for my expectations on love and romance! I want someone like Lloyd Dobler outside my house/bedroom blasting Peter Gabriels "In Your Eyes" from his boom box. Someone like Jake Ryan sitting across from me, wishing me a happy birthday as he leans over my birthday cake to give me a kiss. A guy like Blane McDonogh looking into my eyes telling me he loves me, always! And a bad boy like John Bender, fist pumping after getting a kiss and spending an all day detention with me! Deep down I'm looking for someone whom I can start making these types of memories with. Extra points if you get the references.

I work full time at a mental health agency Monday through Friday and also as a medical social worker at a hospital in Long Beach on the weekends.
I've had the opportunity to have worked with different populations and I have been exposed to hardships and struggles many of us would never even fathom. It is because of those experiences that I am grateful and I am able to cherish and appreciate all that I have in my life. I am excited to see where this career takes me, hoping to be able to play a larger part in the community I live in so as to have a greater impact on those who need services the most. I consider myself fairly independent and I look for individuals who also have a sense of identity and individuality.
