I am a fun, energetic and genuinely nice person. I'm passionate about my work, my family and my friends. I'm adventurous and love trying new things, read quite a bit, and am pretty active physically. Trail runs, yoga, hiking, camping, etc. Just being outdoors makes me happy. I enjoy all the cultural / social stuff bay area has to offer, and frequently take advantage. I have a 6 year old, and share custody with her father. I'm a pretty good mom I think, but am not defined by being a mother. There is quite a bit more going on. I grew up in the Midwest and find that it shaped me more than I think I previously understood. I love and miss thunderstorms, fireflies, and warm summer evenings. I grew up swimming in lakes and try to never miss an opportunity to swim in natural bodies of water. I have two dogs and enjoy romping about with them.
