My self-summary
Attempting to avoid cliches in describing who I am, what I do, my passions and hobbies, I'm just a gal from a small town in northern Maine who moved to DC years ago (after a stint in Boston) trying to figure things out & having a little (or a lot) of fun along the way.

Or perhaps, better stated in 140 characters or less:
a little bit country, a little bit city, fan of pink but never in sports, lover of all accents, including Canadian.
What I’m doing with my life
Navigating the employee owner relationship for my small business while kicking ass and proving everyone wrong, all with a smile on my face.

In my former (non profit life) travelled to one of the few places left on the this planet that most will never have the opportunity to visit. What's your guess? Hint: its a developed country.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, sometimes at my own expense.

Balancing being a sports fan (Caps season ticket holder) and being a woman. I may get a mani/pedi on a regular basis but I will NEVER be caught wearing pink to a game.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just a few highlights:
Movies: Fever Pitch (mostly for the accents), The Departed, The Town, Miracle, Dirty Dancing, Mighty Ducks, Wedding Crashers, Bridesmaids

TV: Mad Men, Big Bang Theory, Friends, 30 Rock, Always Sunny..., How I Met Your Mother, True Blood, Downton Abbey, West Wing and Designing Women.

Books: Lovely Bones, Summer Sisters, True Prep, Born Standing Up, Bossypants, Emperor of Maladies, Blink, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Music: I actually like just about anything, INCLUDING country. I also firmly believe that "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire gets the party started EVERY.TIME.
The six things I could never do without
Laughter
My dog, Bo Bo
Music, especially when the windows are down
Lazy Sunday evenings
Sun, but not the DC humidity
Open water

Short list: bacon, long-haul flights, flip flops, happy hours, hydrangeas, potato blossom festival, turtle cheesecake, 4th of July, stick shift sports cars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to grow a (non-tech) start up in a smart way.
If my rescue dog loves me more than his old family.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is a tough night and I'm usually more inclined to head home, relax and get a good nights sleep. What I don't do on Friday, though, I make up for on Saturday and Sunday.
You should message me if
You realize the importance of using the word wicked to describe anything awesome. Or can at least appreciate it/humor me.
