My self-summary
I was born and raised a military brat, primarily in Germany, which I consider to be my first home. Then I received my English and Theater degrees at NMSU and taught public school in New Mexico, which I consider to be my second home. Now I've been attempting to grow some roots in Seattle for the past 10 years. My extended family lives mostly in Puerto Rico, the mother land!

I graduated with my Master's degree in Teaching from UW in June 2012, then landed an unexpected job in an unrelated field, although I still get to educate. I am taking it as a positive opportunity to discover a new path in life by remaining open to any and all possibilities. I absolutely love my job!

I enjoy learning - reading, mainly fiction, but I dabble in philosophy, history, or science - writing - bicycling - theater - singing - dancing - traveling, whether internationally or a local road trip adventure - teaching - hiking/backpacking - water activities, e.g. kayaking, white water rafting - roller coasters - film - friendship - food - wine - being a child at heart - finding ways to make my friends and my (hypothetical) partner happy. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Regional Coordinating Director for a government cancer health disparities program at Fred Hutch. Awesome work being done there. I love being a part of it.
I’m really good at
I am good at showing kindness, compassion, and empathy.
I am great with maps, which pairs well with my kick-ass road trip/vacation planning skills.
I will be the best sous chef you've ever had.
I am really, really good at wine tasting.
I don't know if I'm good at my artistic interests, but I enjoy them. These include singing and writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I truly don't know, but someone did give me this amazing compliment once: "If a smile made a sound, it would be the sound of your voice." That was really sweet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Currently enjoying dystopian & scifi fiction. Most recently started Red Rising and would love to finish the Wool series someday.
Movies: Too many to mention. I enjoy funny or otherwise uplifting movies with heart, whether in comedy or drama form. Also scary supernatural or alien movies, and scifi.
Food: Italian, German, Puerto Rican, Mediterranean, and southern comfort/soul food
Six things I could never do without
My laptop, or other means of writing
Food & wine
Amusement parks
My friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel next, and how I can get there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either resting from a busy and exhausting week, or figuring out something fun and chill to do with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love Disney. And the holiday season. Yeah, I know...I can't help it. At least I got that off my chest early.
