Family is very important to me.
I was raised in a home with two loving parents, the third born in a family of 4 children. I remain close to my siblings and though we don’t live in the same state, we spend time together at holidays and others as time permits. I feel lucky that my family is healthy in body and mind. I have no children, but love them. If I could have my most perfect match, he would be close to his family and willing to share the gifts of grandchildren.
I am in management of programs for students with disabilities.
I was educated as a Speech-Language Pathologist. My present position allows me the opportunity to create programs to fit individual needs, supervise a number of staff and programs and to problem solve ‘on-the-spot’ all day/every day.
I have a PASSION for travel..
It probably began with my father’s interest in any kind of travel he could work into his busy schedule. From a day trip to the Chicago museums to a two-week trip with the 6 of us and a tent in the trunk of the car - - travel was always full of exploring. The AAA ‘triptik’ was mother’s companion and her reading taught us the unique gifts of each area as we drove.
I love learning and living the culture of another place, smelling the smells, tasting the tastes, and understanding the standards of being a gracious guest. There’s nothing better than exploring the world and all it has to offer, while knowing at the end of the day there’s someone who deeply, authentically, loves who I am.
I love entertaining, being in, on and under the water, exercise, photography, gardening, decorating… Time with family and friends… And time alone with that special someone.
I feel lucky! I have a multitude of friends. I have had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer in the past, and hopefully someday I will be able to serve the community more frequently again.
