I love ...to laugh...and I am not afraid to cry. I love new
adventures and old traditions. I left home soon after high school
to volunteer in Mexico and discovered I loved other cultures and
languages. Since then I have lived in Spain and travelled in Europe
and Latin America. I love to sing and dance and direct theater and
share language and culture.
I am interested in the human spirit and the essence of faith and
the soul. I love both exterior and interior beauty. Human goodness
and faith in God is reflected in how one loves and respects others,
how one loves and respects the earth.
I am passionate and c ompassionate and look for the same in
I love family. After travelling or discovering..I always come back
to those I love most. When my children return home, we share our
love of music and humor and being together.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach Spanish and English as a new language and direct theater.
For fun I sing, contra dance
I enjoy variety..different kinds of people and situations, music
from Vivaldi to the Beatles to Jake Shimabukuru, movies, crazy
board games, singing round the piano, hiking through redwoods,
