I am an upbeat person who sees people in a positive way. I try to
bring out the best in everyone and enjoy a hardy laugh from time to
time. I believe that we are all creative in unique ways and that we
have the ability to change when and if we want to.
I appreciate people who are honest and can communicate what they
feel without worrying about pleasing others. I would like to meet
someone who can listen and be empathic while thinking analytically
at the same time. I enjoy meaningful conversations where one can
feel safe enough to express their inner most fears as well as their
hopes and aspirations.
I enjoy long walks, taking digital photos, and love racing my
little red turbo around the track from time to time.
I love to read mysteries, play a fast game of racquetball, and
enjoy dancing to live music at a club.
I am interested in finding a best friend, someone who keeps my
secrets confidential, and who is my best counsel. I am looking for
someone who is able to make me laugh, to demonstrate how she feels
by a simple touch, and can reach out to show her feelings in the
I don't need someone to be my better half but would like to find
someone who enjoys my company and similar activities.
I spent 6 years working for the Navy at the Everett Naval Station
counseling active duty sailors, their dependents, and numerous
staff with mental health and substance abuse problems. My caseload
was diverse since I saw anyone who wanted help. For the most part I
served our Nation’s Heroes, who came back from an unpopular war,
having experienced traumatic memories of death and dying. I was
born deaf on my right side due to my mother contracting the Measles
during her pregnancy with me. I didn’t serve during the Viet Nam
era and always felt like I wanted to give something back to my
Country. Through my casework at the Everett Naval Station I was
able to help some of our children heal from their sacrifice to
protect us from Terrorism.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
