Greetings! I am currently a second year law student balancing school and motherhood after a couple of lovely years as a stay-at-home mom. I have a background in non-profit admin and also worked as a government linguist - I speak fluent Spanish - (see, you thought I was going to list another language, but nope, I'm full of surprises!) and I'd love to learn another language. I'd also love to learn to play the guitar, hike the Inca Trail, and be a judge. :)
I am kind, smart, and trying to be brave. I am strong and independent, the oldest of four children, but also soft-hearted and compassionate, and willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. I have a sarcastic side, but I am a real optimist and believe that a positive outlook is the only way to happily live life. I adore good conversation, good movies, and good food, and I was raised on the classics - literature, music, opera, film - but I love things that are funny, ironic, and just plain beautiful. I took up running a couple of years ago and I also love yoga. Hiking, campfires, mountains and the sound of moving water make me feel alive, and I love to travel.
Spiritually, I am deeply committed to the gospel and the church, and love both, but I am also unafraid of paradox and the gray areas. I believe we are on the earth to learn to be and love as the Savior.
Off to study. Happy Fall!
