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
-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.
Food: Corny as it may sound - my mama's home cooking
-my dog, Willow. You'll probably end up falling in love with her.
-a good kitchen.
-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).
Next steps - for everything.
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 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.
