My self-summary
I bounced about all over the place these past 10 or so years - for undergrad, grad school, and work. Decided to drop everything in Washington DC and moved to the Pacific Northwest about 3 years ago, and so far love it.

Condensed, nutshell version of me:
-rock climber/hiker/just-get-me-outdoors! On any given weekend, I'm out doing any of the above, or sailing, backpacking/camping, snowboarding, etc. If it gives you an idea of who I am, I literally always have my backpacking gear packed, just so that I can leave on moments notice to head off on a short trip away. It's all a big part of why I moved out here.
-Nurse practitioner, family medicine and urgent care
-former ballet dancer (long story, ask me about it sometime)
-former medical death investigator (ever seen the show "Bones?" I did that. Also a long story, ask me about it too)
-Overly protective dog dad
-cook. Mom taught me well ;)
-closet nerd. Okay, maybe not so closet.
-organ donor ... err, motorbike rider
-swing dancer
-part-time geek.
What I’m doing with my life
Ballet dancer --> cell biology researcher --> forensic anthropologist/death investigator --> policy analyst --> other random stuff. Now, I'm a nurse practitioner in family medicine/urgent care/surgery. Let's see how long I manage to stay in this career.
I’m really good at
-dancing: swing dance, and apparently imitating Beyoncé.
-I fall down a lot.
-being a student. If I could pull it off, I'd probably be a graduate student for life.
-listening to people's stories. Asking questions. Caring.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my dorky, nerdy glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Bon Iver, Birdie, All swing (hot jazz, big band, and female front singers), Eva Cassidy. I'm an NPR junkie.

Food: Corny as it may sound - my mama's home cooking
The six things I could never do without
Random, rainbow six:
-my dog, Willow. You'll probably end up falling in love with her.
-a good kitchen.
-my family.
-obnoxiously good friends.
-my Ninja Turtles bandanna (in the 2nd grade, I was a card carrying member of their fan club, which took me saving 4 months of allowance to pay for. Hey, don't judge - better this than Power Rangers).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel - I used to do quite a bit of it for work, but now find myself firmly planted in one location for a bit. Taking suggestions ...

Next steps - for everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
A group of my friends and family get together on an almost weekly basis on Fridays, having dinner at one of our houses/backyards. Don't be surprised if at some point in the evening I am pretending to be a superhero, saving my friend's 7-year old little girl who is pretending to be trapped in a tower by an evil flamingo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a covert operative for an undisclosed government organization. Really.

I know all the choreography to Single Ladies.

I have accidentally failed a polygraph.

Oh, and I also work part-time for a ballet studio. Of all of these, I suppose this is the most believable?
You should message me if
You can deal with organized randomocity. :)

You think you can beat me at Scrabble or backgammon.

You're as much of an outdoors/travel adventurer as I am.

You enjoy being challenged (in a good way, I promise), and likewise, can challenge me.
