I'm in vet school so I'm pretty into animals and currently have two dogs and a snake. I'm interested in exotic species as well as dogs and cats so I've spent some time working with some pretty interesting animals including sea turtles, giraffes, rhinos, raptors, and more!
In my very limited spare time I like to exercise and stay fit as best I can, though I admit I haven't been super great about it recently - I run triathlons but I haven't raced since I completed my first half Ironman race in October 2011. I'm hoping to have more time to get back into it once I'm done with vet school though! I also enjoy playing nerdy card/board games with my husband and our friends - Dominion and Talisman are two of our favorites.
I wouldn't consider myself shy but I can be quiet when I first meet new people. I tend to prefer hanging out with a few people I know well as opposed to going to a big party, but I do really like getting to know new people, especially if we have a lot in common, and once I'm comfortable, I really enjoy being social and can have a great time just sitting and talking and laughing with friends for hours.
