Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
In order to be yourself, you must first have an idea of who you are, so here are some things you should know about me…
I thrive on human interaction. My mood is usually a reflection of the people I’m around, whether that be friends, family, or co-workers.
Although, I’m an educated person, I believe having a positive attitude and outlook will take you the furthest in life. I ask how I can do something rather than say it can’t be done.
I have a good sense of humor, which I accredit to my father. I, of course, can be serious when it is called for, but I believe Henry Ward Beecher said it best, “A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It’s jolted by every pebble in the road.”
Music is a one of my many passions. I sing like nobody’s listening, dance like nobody’s watching and I’m pretty sure my steering wheel hates me.
The TV show, Hoarders, is my nightmare! Organization, time management, and prioritizing tasks are the key components to success.
I believe creativity and style say a lot about a person.
Everyone possesses at least one talent, writing is mine.
I’ve been told by many, friends and strangers, that I have a magnetic energy. It’s my favorite compliment.
My favorite personality trait is my honesty. My favorite physical attribute is my nose.
Being able to rely on others is a benefit. Being able to rely on yourself is a necessity, in all aspects of life.
I work to live; I do not live to work.
I’m a nurturer by nature and proved that while working as an EMT-B with the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad. As I hadn’t had the best history with emergency situations, many loved ones doubted my choice to take on this role. I proved to them and, more importantly myself, that I can handle most any situation and it felt good!
As a child, I was the little girl that the rest of the little girls looked at during the dance recital to lead them. I’ve never grown out of that.
These are just some details that give you a little insight as to who I am. My goals for the future are simple: take pride in what I do; enjoy life because it is too short not to; and leave a positive impression on those I encounter along the journey.
