My self-summary
Social worker. Ungraceful yogi. Mother. Meditator and mediator. Advocate. Passionate and a little high strung. Tantrika. Owner of hips and thighs. Not so good with the romance. Shockingly poor organizational skills; master multi-tasker. Lover of love, mountains, tattoos, photography, adventures, rainy days in pajama pants, music (Nahko, Trevor Hall, Michael Franti, yes please), humans who embrace their scars and dark spots, connection without pretense, and a good meditation rock in the woods.
What I’m doing with my life
My work is challenging and wonderful.
I'm also a parent - a big and fantastic job.
Other than that, I try to take walks and be outside whenever I can, and try to carve out some "me" time when I can to just relax.
I’m really good at
Working with children. Consuming what for other people would be toxic amounts of caffeine. Crock pot cooking. Problem solving. Debating. Holding space.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my eyes. Or the adorable kid perpetually on my hip :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the Mossflower series, Harry Potter, cheesy romance/mystery novels, Eckhart Tolle, Rudy Ballentine, Swami Rama, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, older spiritual texts.

Movies: I'm a huge Adam Sandler fan. I don't think a person can watch Billy Madison or Mr. Deeds too many times. I also like a good documentary now and again.

Shows: I don't have cable, so nothing new usually. I watch the Daily Show religiously (update: am in mourning at Jon Stewart's departure), and trying to keep up with New Girl and a few other funny/sitcom type shows.

Music: Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Dave Matthews, Strangefolk, Krishna Das...it really depends on my mood!

Food: Comfort food, Japanese, Indian. I'm a mostly-vegetarian and make a mean stir fry.
Six things I could never do without
My daughter
Nature
Art
Caffeinated beverages
Music
Hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, when I can, I try to spend time not thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
...with my daughter, asleep, out with friends...it varies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not a whole lot!
