I am pretty easy going, friendly if you are nice to me and usually when you're not. I love playing tennis and volleyball. I can do some trash talking on the court in between the laughs. And off the court, I'm always ready for a good laugh... even if that means laughing at myself. I love hiking in the "mountains" of Phoenix or going for a bike ride of any sort. A good movie always is fun and trying out new places to eat is an adventure (though not always the healthiest). I do like to have a good time, have long, deep discussions about a huge variety of subjects, participate in anything active. I love going to basketball games, and even watching sports on TV. Oh, and did I say that I like to play tennis.
Some facts: Lived in CT, NJ, UT (grew up there) IA, OH, NV, AZ. Been in AZ for 6 years...a record. 2nd of 6 children. Have 2 daughters. Participated in sports, choir, theater, debate/speech in HS. Have liked to do them ever since, except maybe the debating...not so much fun. Just like to discuss! Mission to England. Degree in English at U of U. Worked in advertising but then stayed home with kids.
Favorite things to do, play tennis, read, watch good movies, be with my daughters, be with my friends, appreciating art, music (all sorts), trying something new.
The church and my family are the center of my life. All of the other things work around that and enhance my life. I am lucky enough to live close enough to a temple to get to go often. I am currently a Laurel Advisor and love teaching, especially gospel stuff. And I love working with these girls. They are awesome. I wouldn't consider life with out the gospel being at the center.
I was lucky enough to be able to go back to England, where I served my mission, for the first time last year. There's something special about where you serve. I was so happy I could take my daughters and let them see where I learned to be an adult! Plus, they got to meet some of my favorite people.
I recently got certified as a Life Coach, and am working on building that business. It's wonderful working with people and seeing their lives change the way they want them to. It's still at the beginning stages, but I'm excited to see where this all ends up. I have big dreams!
