My self-summary
I moved back to the US after ~2 years in Europe, based in Helsinki...it was a rich experience on every level -- especially in being the outsider, seeing other cultures and my own through their lens, and finding home in any place. I'd do it again, but somewhere warmer;)

Like everyone here, I'd like to meet someone I resonate with. I've been pretty work-focused the past years and each new professional rung ain't got nothin on laughing till I'm crying, exploring or adventuring with a partner or sharing the time with someone who feels like home. I want that. I hate the saying, but I do think you know when the chemistry is there -- then you know for sure when you can navigate life together.

I like a pretty good balance of serious and play, to be healthy and stay active (distance running and yoga are my standard choices but I'll do most anything active -- bike, hike, snowboard, swim, etc). I enjoy traveling -- both for work and not.
Like-mindedness is important, but challenging my thinking is quite welcome -- heated arguments not so much. Most of all, I think it's important to have passion, compassion, a drive, personal compass, curiousity and respect for others -- oh, and laughter. My family regularly ends up laughing so hard we are all in tears...this, I love.
What I’m doing with my life
My background is in the sciences. After grad school I spent a few years at a non-profit that funded research and clinical work in cancer applications, and there my role quickly became program management and marketing...then more marketing. I ended up working for a global medical device company at one of their businesses in Helsinki in clinical marketing, and now in a broader marketing role with the same company here outside of Boston. I really enjoy my work -- the intersection of policy, science/clinical, health and wellness and business creates a lot of good challenges and I get to try to understand and tackle them with really bright people. It's sometimes too much work, but not ever boring.
I’m really good at
Connecting - sometimes drawing connections between things and people, often connecting with them. And laughing -- I really enjoy witty, punchy humor and being with people who have a light-hearted quality.
