I sat at a table surrounded by close friends for my birthday this July and realized that I have a great life, but I'm missing a partner to share it with (I know, super cheesy).
I like to stay active between time at the gym, going for runs, and hiking. My running partner is my 40lb puppy that tries to sit on my shoulder like a parrot. I’m always up for scratching something off of my bucket list. Skydiving, flying planes, anything I think might be fun. I also take work and school pretty seriously, but I often think of ditching them for becoming the next Anthony Bourdain.
[insert resume here haha]
I grew up in DC and went to a small college with a strange name in PA. My undergrad degree is in psychology, but after working in the field as an outreach case manager I found that I wanted to have a greater impact on how mental health is treated in the country. So, now I'm in a grad program with a focus on Health Policy/saving the world. My old job involved traveling around the city helping individuals with mental illnesses live happy, independent lives. I love what I’m doing now, but occasionally miss working directly with clients.

2) You'll laugh at my stupid jokes and can effortlessly go from inaugural balls to dive bars
3) Seriously, #1 is a deal breaker
Bonus points if you can touch your nose with your tongue. I've never met someone that can actually do it.
