If you are still reading, here's a little bit more about me: I'm a Californian, however I moved to DC 6 years ago after graduate school to work for the federal government and because CA's economy is so bad, even earthquakes are leaving the state :-).
I am someone who is passionate about helping others and likes to make people feel included. I live in the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington with my dog and work a block away from the cover of my 8th grade U.S. History book, the U.S. Capitol (let's not discuss my actual academic performance in that class).
Physical fitness is important to me and I just ran my first half marathon and am hooked.... however I also enjoy less intense activities like indoor bocce, top golf and hosting guys poker night.
My family means more to me than just about anything in the world....My parents are in their 45th year of marriage and I am proud of my two nieces / goddaughters for being habitual 'honor roll students'.... a term that was foreign to me when I was their age :-)
