Thinker but not advocator, relatively goal driven, adventurous, very aesthetic and completely passionate about my work. I’m athletic but not really a sports fan. Mostly, I’m a runner who loves salsa dancing and other excuses to get dolled up. Friends describe me as genuine, insightful, practical, minimalist, efficiency minded, somewhat tomboyish, surprisingly domestic. National park fan and foodie.
Interested in authentic connections-no pen pals or puppies, please. If we click...all the better.
What I’m doing with my life
Work-wise: As a teacher I wear a lot of hats - facilitator, cheerleader, life-coach, mentor, guru of skill development, creative genius, etc.

I’m really good at

is in the fridge or pantry
-making healthy eating and exercise routine while still allowing
for indulgences that are worth it
-avoiding/procrastinating things I don't like to do
-teaching/facilitating/accent mod coaching

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a more effective instructor...and how to make the most of
On a typical Friday night I am
Salsa dancing, happy hour, or home reading a book.
