I was born on the east coast and moved to Hawaii when I was four. I consider myself very lucky to have grown up in such a beautiful and special place. I'm very grateful to my parents that they decided to move from Massachusetts to Hawaii, as I don't think I would have survived the winters on the east coast. I'm definitely a warm weather girl, which is one reason why I love living in LA! Surprisingly though, I'm not a big beach person, and I'm not a very good swimmer. But I do know how to dance hula, I danced for about 14 years from the age of six.
I moved to LA in 2007 after living in Northern Cali for seven years as I finished my schooling. I got my B.S. in Animal Science from UC Davis and then went to tech school to become a veterinary technician. I love my job, it's very rewarding and every day is different. I love feeling like I've made a difference in caring for an animal or educating a client about their pet. It's not always cute puppies and kittens though, sometimes it can be a very dirty, gross, stressful job. But I can't imagine doing anything else!
I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of what all LA has to offer, and would love to explore more of it with a special someone. I tend to stay local when I go out, mostly to downtown Burbank. It would be nice to meet someone who can introduce me to a different part of LA. I like going to the movies, restaurants, comedy clubs, bars/lounges. I've done a couple hikes around LA and would love to do more.
I'm very close with my family, I go home to visit them twice a year. My parents have been married for over 40 years and they are my role models. I have a great brother who's 11 years older than me, and an adorable 8 year old niece. Family is very important to me, and I would love to have a family of my own someday.
I'm looking for a guy who's grounded and stable in his life, who knows who he is and what he wants in life. I like nice guys who know how to treat a woman with respect and make her feel special. I'm attracted to intelligence and a good sense of humor. I like guys who take care of themselves and care about their appearance, but not to an extreme. Oh and he must like dogs!
If you're interested, please send me an email, and more than just a "hey". Winks are ok, just be warned that I may not respond.
