Tell us a little bit about you and what you like to do in your free time.

I am mother to three boys, one of the two-legged variety and two of the four-legged. I love to cook and, even more than that, I love to eat. I enjoy spending time with my amazing friends and family. I love to travel and plan to take my son to Australia and New Zealand for his 16th birthday this year.


What do you look for in a partner?

Kindness, intelligence and a great sense of humor are all important to me. I need someone who is strong enough to tell me when I am being ridiculous (which is more often than I like to admit), but patient enough to understand my storms always blow over quickly, all they need is to wait out the storm. Must love dogs.


What are your deal breakers?

Being unkind to those less fortunate, being a bad tipper and/or being a Raiders fan.


Describe your dream first date.

That’s a tough question because I enjoy so many different things. Mostly, I just want it to be fun and the conversation to flow easily.



What’s your Zodiac sign and which signs are you compatible with? (And which signs should stay away!)

Aries, the fire sign, first sign of the Zodiac. My most compatible sign is Sagittarius. I am also compatible with Leo, Aquarius, Gemini and fellow Aries. My least compatible signs are Capricorn and Cancer.
