My favorite past times: yoga, hiking, being in nature, weekend getaways, travel, reading, wine tasting. Spending time with my 12-year-old daughter. It is important to me to spend times with friends and family My career affords me the opportunity to be spontaneous, which I wholeheartedly believe is the spice of life. We usually have music playing at the house much more often than the television. Can't imagine life without dogs. Please don't write me if you want to only chat via this machine, as I am on it too much with work anyway. Talking on the phone to see if we would want to continue our conversation in person is the way to go. Best to all.
