If you are looking for the quintessential LDS Utah gal I suggest you skip reading any further and move on to the next profile. I don’t scrapbook or make my own bread (I probably could do a decent job at it, though), and (don’t laugh) I only learnt what funeral potatoes were a year ago. I have never made a Jello salad, and don’t expect to in the near future unless it happens to be your favorite and then I’ll happily and quickly get the hang of it just how you like it.
I’ve worked outside the home since I was 12 years-old. I was a high school dropout that was fortunate to develop a love of learning. I love to engage in intelligent discussion and debate where it is permissible to agree to disagree on the finer points or, even better, I learn something new. I have spent decades (gulp!) in a career I am passionate about and don’t plan on giving this up any time soon. (Span style="font-weight:bold;")For those of you that need a mother, a personal assistant, or a house maid, I am not the woman for you. I love spontaneity, togetherness, and a sense of collaboration and team. My career is centered in crisis management with a penchant for the dramatic, and consequently I prefer my personal life drama and pity party free.
I am conservative for the most part, but not one to be underestimated. Generally speaking (emphasis on the ‘generally’) I view most rules as a common sense guideline. Consequently I can’t make myself follow a recipe in its exactness – I always have to mess with it. Don’t let that imply I can’t cook. On the contrary! I can cook without a recipe and it’s usually pretty good.
I love to travel and have seen just a few places on my bucket list. Next Fall I hope to participate in a two week humanitarian mission to India. I am past the need to go camping and rough it for recreational leisure, though I am more than able to do so. These days I prefer life a little less rustic and a little more comfortable for the most part. I like to run, play the occasional game of racquetball, and go out to the movies. I’m a little odd regarding the latter – I can’t stand to miss the previews. I’d rather miss the whole movie and go to another showing.
While I am a little unconventional and nontraditional I value tradition and convention where it counts. I am a convert and have a testimony of the gospel that isn’t up for creative interpretation. I value the institution of marriage and family in a conservative and traditional way, and make no apologies. However, if a child on occasion wants leftover birthday cake for breakfast it isn’t going to ht:bold;")kill them so I’ll most likely say “Absolutely!” and join in the partaking.
Feel free to say hi. First impressions aren’t usually lasting impressions so if you’re willing to get to know me a little you can be assured I will do likewise. Thanks for stopping by.
