Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a Midwestern girl at heart (St. Louis) but I've lived all over
and have been in SD for 3 years. I'm laid back but driven,
friendly, intelligent and fun. I'm pretty well traveled and enjoy
conversations with depth. I am in grad school full time (and am a
graduate research assistant) and work a full time job so I stay
pretty busy but I love what I do.
I aim to be my happiest and healthiest self through balancing the
basics: eating well, exercising, drinking water, getting sleep,
meditating/mindfulness, connection with friends and family and the
pursuit of fulfilling goals.
I am a pretty confident and independent person and I don't worry
too much what others think. I value having fun and being true to
myself with the people I care about most- which may or may not look
like rollerblading at night on the boardwalk with my best friend in
fanny packs and headlamps.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On the grind. I'm a mental health counselor- currently working at a
residential treatment center for mental illness. I got my BA in
psychology, certification in Alcohol and Drug Counseling and am now
working on my Masters at USD to be a therapist. Next stop is Ph.D.
My path has been pretty bumpy and I bummed around after college but
I finally found my passion in counseling.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
listening, finding the positive, connecting the dots, googling,
I can also really rock sweats and pajamas...

Probably that I'm pretty laid back. Or blonde. Or both.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll read, watch, listen to and eat almost anything. I eat a
healthy natural diet but I try not to be too rigid about it because
that's just not fun.
I love Netflix documentaries but I also love to laugh a lot so I
tend to watch comedies. I'm pretty busy but when I get a chance to
watch TV I like New Girl, Walking Dead, and Orange is the New
Black. My all time favorite is Arrested Development. If you've
heard of and/or enjoy Flight of the Conchords or Summer Heights
High you get major bonus points.
My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Why I seem to be the only adult who rides their grocery cart when
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I am not working I am usually spending time with friends. I love
to try new things but I also enjoy staying in and being cozy while
reading or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm absolutely terrible with faces and names. But mainly faces. It
gets me in some awkward situations.
