I'm a northern girl: I grew up in CT and lived in NYC for many years. But I love the South Florida life-style: the ocean, the palm trees, and the fact that you can wear flip-flops every day of the year. I love to travel and experience new places. I like to explore and be active--from running and yoga to checking out new restaurants/bars/events. I am always game for trying something new! As a teacher, I try to use creativity, compassion, and fun in everything I do. I'm the kind of person who strives to be present and cultivate happiness and gratitude in my life. I honestly believe that the pen is mightier than the sword and that laughter is the best medicine. I'd like to meet someone who has a similar energy and passion for life and experience.
