My self-summary
I'm a busy, hardworking, passionate girl who loves to be outdoors; the feeling of the sun on my skin is something I seek out often. Experiencing new things, traveling, unexpected adventures, intellectual debates and laughing so hard I can't breathe are a few of the things that keep me going. Taking the time to appreciate simple pleasures keeps me grounded. I'm an artist at heart, and I consider myself to have a creative spirit. Activities that make me feel truly alive rate highly in my book. I need to be challenged intellectually in life to feel fulfilled - love those conversations that actually make my brain hurt.

One of my passions is dancing Argentine tango. It's a beautiful dance and its all about connecting with people. Don't worry, it's not that cheesy crap you see on 'Dancing with the Stars.'

Another passion of mine is health and fitness. I'm a personal trainer for a living, but it's not just my job, it's my lifestyle.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a full-time personal trainer at a gym here in DC, and also have several independent clients. I'm passionate about helping people achieve their goals and transform themselves and their relationship to fitness.

Prior to training, I spent most of my professional life working for non-profits and have a special passion for improving educational opportunity for low-income and minority children. I worked for an early literacy campaign for several years on the health team trying to address health issues that contribute to kids' difficulties learning to read proficiently by third grade.
I’m really good at
Dancing. I've been dancing in some form since I was 6...its a huge part of who I am, and I'm extremely passionate about it. I am also good at being a loyal friend, and having passionate debates about things that are important to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I laugh A LOT.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Barbara Kingsolver, Virginia Woolfe, Toni Morrison, Flannery O'Connor, and Bill Bryson. A few of my favorite books are To Kill A Mocking Bird, Beloved, To The Lighthouse....

Movies: Once, Motorcycle Diaries, Runaway Jury, Garden State, Rain Man, The Holiday, Talk to Me and many more.

My music taste is pretty broad, and I love finding new artists. Some favorites are Amos Lee, Jason Mraz, Damien Rice, Jack Johnson, Dispatch, Coldplay, the Shins, Mike Doughty, Tracy Chapman, Citizen Cope, Lorde, Ed Sheeran and Florence and the Machine.
The six things I could never do without

Exercise

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want now, what I want in the furture, and how I'm going to get there. And having fun of course.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, chilling and watching a movie, or going out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm...sometimes I dance in my apartment when I'm alone;)
You should message me if
If you are out-going, open-minded, can challenge me, introduce me to new things, enjoy new experiences and laugh often.
