|Location||Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States|
|Introduction||I'm a wife and a mother. I work more than full time as a nurse practitioner with cancer patients which is gratifying on many levels and sad and frustrating on a few. I love my job as much as I love my time off! I'm average and extraordinary, just as you are. I've experienced profound failures, significant disappointments, had a few successes, and been the recipient of a lot of mercy. I try to maintain a correct perspective on what's important in life, and that requires reflection. My friendly exterior might mislead you to regard me as an extrovert, but I am comfortable with, and require, a considerable amount of time alone. I need that balance. My Catholic faith is very important to me, and while I'm no theologian, I believe my faith informs my outlook and values. That is my intention. In a world that seems more and more drawn to the trivial or the brash, I look for inspiration from the absolute truth that God was, is, and is to come. Knowing Him is my ultimate destiny.|
