Life is short (kind of like me) and I can’t let it pass me by. When I had the chance to explore life beyond the hills of my little hometown, Danville, I took it and left for Cambridge, MA. Surprisingly, I loved New England so much I stayed there for almost 10 years.
Working hard throughout school has granted me with amazingly fun opportunities. I’ve treated diverse populations for oral medicine, raised thousands of dollars for Team in Training, Dana Farber, Muscular Dystrophy, and Run for Liver Research. I’ve also literally bleed and sweat in Ironman distance tri’s and 12+ hr adventure race competitions, touched the roof of Africa, and opened treasure chests 100 feet below the ocean surface. And whenever possible, I love the feeling of champagne powder under a pair of skis or surfing with dolphins off the California coastline.
Fortunately, I’m in a place and position in my life that allows me to travel halfway around the world to volunteer at international aid camps and to take in local culture. I still remember making hacky-sacks with monklets (little monks in training) out of foil wrappers and pebbles in the Himalayas. If you ever trek the Everest trail to base camp, don’t forget to circumambulate the stupa at Tengboche. And if you encounter a Maori warrior who throws a silver fern at your feet, pick it up and say “Kia ora.” It just might save your life.
I'm not looking for perfection. Most people agree that it doesn't exist. I'm just looking for that connection two people have which allows them to open up and share their lives together. I hope to find someone who has a great sense of humor, a good head on her shoulders, and an adventurous spirit.
So, if you're the girl next door who is passionate about how she lives and who is just as comfortable in a pair of running shoes as she is in a pair of heels, then shoot me a quick email. We can always go for coffee or a short run (not necessarily in those respective combo’s).
