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

The six things I could never do without
Being Outdoors/ the Sun
Pets- (I have a cat but also love dogs)
Friends and Family
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.
