I am an energetic, passionate, adventurous, fun-loving, positive, ambitious woman who loves life and all the good that it has to offer! I am actively pursuing the things I love to do! I have some of the best friends a person could ever wish for and I love meeting new people on a regular basis.
People give me insight, perspective and energy. Because I enjoy learning new things and love being around good people, I love creating and organizing a wide variety of groups for nearly everything I have a passion for.
I have learned that when I include other people in activities I love to do, I am always more successful!
On the other hand, when I do some things on my own - I am less likely to be consistent in whatever I'm trying to accomplish.
I am attracted to people who have a spirit of adventure, who aren't afraid to work hard, who enjoy helping others, who are passionate about life and have a positive attitude.
I find it easy to promote healthy, positive activities, especially things that are outdoors. I thrive on helping people feel good about themselves and showing them what they are capable of doing, whether it's snowshoeing in 0 degree temperatures or hiking to a peak.
I find great satisfaction in helping others feel as good as I feel! I know I am a very blessed woman since I am surrounded by many loyal, caring friends and family members.
