Hi my name is Michelle and I live in New York (upstate New York, not to be confused with New York City). I work at one of the many colleges in Albany where I am responsible for all the academic services. I really enjoy my job because I have the opportunity to work on all sorts of projects and with lots of different people across the college all with the purpose of helping our students reach their education goals.
I am from a really big family (one of eight) where I am the second oldest. We grew up in New York but now spread all over the world. Half of my siblings are married with kids so I have lots of nieces and nephews, so I am in constant competition with my other sisters to be the best aunt ever!!
I love traveling and have been able to take quite a few trips in the past year. I really love culture so I like trying and seeing new things... like restaurants, shows, museums, galleries, etc. Most friends would describe me as being an out-doorsy kind of person because I love going on adventures involving canoeing/kayaking, hiking and camping during the spring, summer and fall. While I am not the biggest fan of winter I'm almost always willing to try something new.
My social calendar is usually full of fun activities with family and friends but I strive for balance in my life, so I am sure to schedule time for relaxing with a good book, watching a movie, playing the piano or working on a new watercolor painting. I don't currently have any callings at church which allows me to attend most of my own classes but I am asked to sub periodically for primary or play piano for sacrament meeting or relief society.
So what am I looking for?? Well, someone that makes me laugh so hard that I cry and forces me to not take myself so seriously. Someone who is a good person and strives to be righteous and look for the good in others. Someone who shares my number one goal of raising a family. Someone that is strongly rooting in the gospel and believes that family is the most important thing.
If you want to know more, please feel free to contact me.
