I'm a "third culture kid." I was a corporate "brat." I lived in
Cuba, The Philippines, and Colombia growing up and my exposure to
other cultures early on had a profound, and positive, effect on my
life. As a result I have often felt I was not one thing or the
other. I never had the average American "growing up" experience but
I wouldn't change the way I did grow up, either. I loved my
I've learned a lot about myself and the world around me in recent
years and have achieved some peace of mind and acceptance of who
and why I am. I love art, sports (baseball!), music, TRAVEL, my
dog/family/friends, walking and being outdoors, intellectual
conversations, and on and on.
And I've been told I have a pretty wicked sense of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
I've become more involved in humanitarian acts. Nothing like
looking outside of yourself to change your perspective. I have a
particular soft spot for Habitat for Humanity and have become more
involved with Habitat through the Unitarian Universalist church I
I am also learning how to play the banjo! It has been on my bucket
list since my early teens and I love the music that just jumps out

I think I'm a pretty intuitive person. It seems we all have a need
to be listened to, to be valued (I know I do!) and I try very hard
to do that for others.

The six things I could never do without
There always has to be compassion in my life. We are surrounded by
people and animals who don't lead happy lives and I believe we have
to take care of each other. I'm inquisitive and intellectually
curious. I always want to know the why of things! I'm happiest when
surrounded by kind people. Kind people make me a better person.
And, of course, the more love there is in my life makes me a more
And when I can get to a beach quickly I'm a pretty happy girl!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I follow politics and philosophy and my views would currently be
described as liberal/progressive. I like to chew the fat. I think
change is frequently a good thing and I'm working to bring more
positive change into my life. And I also think about what I can do
to have more fun! Life can become too serious! I'd love to have a
traveling partner, somebody to go to baseball games with - a
relationship we can both enjoy. Let's see what happens. . .
On a typical Friday night I am
Working at Denver International Airport! I "retired" from Frontier
Airlines, which just means I found a new job, quit the airline biz
AND, because I was a long term, loyal employee, I was still able to
keep my flying bennies. And now I work in a government job . . . at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
