I'm a stew of contradictions: quiet yet engaging; I crave solitude but gravitate towards people (and I'm accurately called 'shy' but my closest friends tend to be social and outgoing); I shun the limelight but love to be on stage singing with my old a cappella group; I'm a cat person who's growing to like dogs.... the list goes on. I'm a Gemini, so apparently that shouldn't surprise? (I had to look that up, by the way, astrology isn't my thing) Teachers run in my family, which is partly why I'm so partial to those who are also educators. "Those who can't, teach" is not an idiom that'll fly with me!
Family and Maine are more important to me than I can express, and I'm fiercely loyal to my friends and those who have touched my life either personally or professionally. I've lived in Nashville (grad school) and PA but my home state and family & old friends are never far from my mind.
I love laughter, and humor both subtle and overt, high-brow and slapstick, and I especially like to make others chuckle (even if it's as they roll their eyes).
