Hello! I'm a pretty quiet person until I get comfortable in my surroundings, but after that, I'm pretty open. I'm a born and raised Arizonan and my motto for years has been, "Born and raised, can't wait to get out!" One of these days I'll find the courage to just up and move to the northwest where it actually rains. Rain is such a luxury in AZ that you'll never hear me complain about it. I despise umbrellas by the way. :)
I love, love, love to travel and it will sometimes get me in trouble. I also enjoy watching movies, reading, baking and quilting. Pretty much I'm a domestic girl at heart. I'm also handy with a screwdriver and can (when needed) change the oil in my car, change my brakes and battery, switch out fixtures and wall outlets in the house, lay flooring, and paint. Beware, ripping up old linoleum is not fun! Growing up with four brothers and no sisters, I was expected to hold my own and play football in the back yard. Knowing how to do the "guy" things was no exception.
When I've reached that comfy level, I also like to dance but be warned, no skills. Unfortunately, my outdoor skills send me rolling down mountains, and my sports skills send the ball in the wrong direction! But I like to play for fun regardless.
I work in higher education and really enjoy what I do. Basically I stare at data all day and make sure the system works as it should. It's a great environment and I find new challenges everyday.
