Recently moved to Austin. I'm thrilled to be closer to home and in warmer weather.
I was born and raised in Oklahoma, moved to NYC in 2006, and then to Austin in 2014. I am enthusiastic, confident and sincere. I've invested most of my time in my career and love what I do. I have a lot of energy and travel a lot, so I am a busy gal. I like it that way! But I don't mind taking it easy sometimes with a big glass of red wine, the DVR cue'd with my favorite shows, and my pup curled up on the couch with me. (Update: my pup of 13 years passed away in October and it's been harder to deal with than I had imagined).
I'm definitely an extravert. I am energized by social situations and meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. My degrees are in Spanish and Public Relations which led to my interest in exploring the world. I lived in Spain, Guatemala and Honduras for short periods of time and have returned a few times for vacation.
I'm interested in everything and perfect at nothing. A sports lover, animal lover, arts lover, fun lover, and love lover
But don't be deceived, I'm not a workout junkie. On the weekends, I spend my time watching college football (Oklahoma Sooners, specifically), taking my dog to the park, enjoying a long brunch, and doing something new and interesting. I love to entertain and try to take advantage of my kitchen in Austin when I can.
I like it hot! So for fun, I can be found somewhere near the sun and sand. Recent vacation destinations include Hawaii, Bahamas, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, France, Puerto Rico, and Miami (so easy to get there for a weekend).
