It is nearly impossible to accurately describe oneself, as our perception of ourselves is often very different from what others see. So let me just list some things I like to do and you can make your own judgements. My music is ALWAYS playing, in the house, car, while running, etc. If I could see live music every weekend, I would!! I just completed my first triathlon, and now I am hooked and plan to do another sometime soon, so I am active daily.
As of July 2014 I have put work on hold for a year to finish a second Master's Degree to become a Nurse Midwife/Women's Health Nurse Practitioner. Before that I was a High Risk Perinatal Nurse and manage pregnant women whose baby's are diagnosed with birth defects and complications. Yes it is stressful and emotionally exhausting, but I loved what I did. My career goal is to move onto taking care of happy and healthy women, and have less death and dying...makes for a more positive life!! I am very proud of my professional achievements and prefer to date someone who feels the same about their career. Plus ideally I meet a guy who is not threatened by my intellect and education and can get into some great conversations!!
If not working you might find me running, biking, swimming, hiking, signed up for a digital photography class, seeing my favorite bands play live or something else creative to keep life interesting. I am not someone who is obsessed with any one activity, and attempt to try new things from time to time, just so life doesn't get boring. I recently took a 3 week road trip from LA to Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon and back home. It was an amazing trip and I hope to take more like it. As a kid I loved being in the outdoors and since living in LA I have done less and less of that, but now really want to bring it back into my life and enjoy what nature has to offer. So if you like to hike, run, swim, camp or anything else outdoors....let me know!!
They may not show in my pictures but I have several small and large tattoos, and plan on getting more over time. In my line of work I keep them covered, but they are there!
Other interests include running, hiking, playing softball, snowboarding, golfing, surfing...you name it and I'll try it.
I am a nice, intelligent, active, independent, sarcastic, dog-loving, fun-time having, great family kind of gal. Gosh, just kind of want to have a good time, with some good people and enjoy life to the fullest!!
At this point I have given up trying to describe what kind of person I am looking for. All I ask is that you are a nice person and we have fun together, other than that "the list" that all girls have of the "perfect" guy has been thrown out the window. I guess I will know what I am looking for when I find it!
