I’ve always been passionate about public health and public service, and I’ve worked hard to turn those interests into a career I love. That said, I definitely make the most of my free time. Being active is a huge part of my daily routine – this includes cycling, running, swimming, climbing and hiking. I also travel regularly and would love to get to all seven continents. Recent trips have included eastern and coastal Oregon, Austin, Denver, Niagara Falls, and Italy. My days wouldn’t be complete without NPR (Morning Edition, Fresh Air, etc.) and good food (nom!). While I’m fairly shy at first, I truly cherish the relationships I’ve developed with a core group of friends.
I’m at a really good place in life and I’m looking for an equal with similar values and interests to enrich it. Ideally, my partner would have an exciting and purposeful vision for his life. He would be kind, hard working, responsible, active, and a lifelong learner. He’d embrace banter and wouldn’t shy away from challenging me to think differently about the world. And if he could teach me something about food, music, art, literature, or outdoor activities, that would be pretty sweet, too.
