I have always been an overachiever and on the run. However, lately I have been learning how to slow down and take time to enjoy my life and the people that are in it. I have recently discovered a love for the outdoors - running, biking, boating and hiking are among a few of the activities that I enjoy. I run nearly every day and have been making more of an effort to bike around Grand Rapids. I ran in the Colour Run, Mud Run and Warrior Dash. Also, I would like to participate in the Tough Mudder next year when it comes to Michigan.
I grew up in Grand Rapids, and my entire family is here. We are very close and I spend time with them as much as my schedule allows. I especially love going up to Northern Michigan, where my dad keeps his boat, and go fishing and paddle boarding. There is nothing like Northern Michigan.
I am a registered nurse here in Grand Rapids. It is an emotionally demanding yet rewarding position. I learn something new every day in my job and really can see the impact that nursing care can have on patients and their families. Even though I enjoy bedside nursing, I hope to go onto school to become a CRNA.
Other interests that I have are concerts and music - Grand Rapids has a great local music scene and I can even be caught from time to time at a festival or two. I can't play an instrument to save my life, but I greatly can appreciate good music when it comes along. I also enjoy reading and movies/television series - however, I can't sit still for all too long so I usually catch a show before I go to bed to unwind. I am always up for a game of disc golf.
I love my life and am learning to enjoy new things as I can. I am looking for someone who is hardworking yet can take time to enjoy what is around them. I would like to find someone that is constantly able to push me outside of my limit and comfort zone to travel or try new things or become more active. Basically, I'm looking for a good companion to go through the adventure that is life.
