About Me


To be open to new ideas that involve helping and meeting people.


I am open-minded, energetic and love to laugh with my friends and family. I love my single life and share my home with a high school friend who pays rent. We went to see Keb' Mo' last night with other friends in Greensburg, PA.
I have practiced yoga for about 37 years and have 200 hours of yoga teacher training. I host weekly yoga class in my home for friends and have recently tried "hot" yoga in Murrysville
My sons live in Evergreen, Colorado and I visit them as often as I can. My young grandchildren are the best part of my life these days. Sometimes I want to move to Colorado to be with them more. But I do love my life here in PA. So for now I am staying in PA!


Life is an adventure and people are usually kind and interesting. I love having my family to visit and spend time with as well as always being there for each other. I have no regrets and find time to really enjoy the exciting world we live in. I have my health and my friends and pets to be thankful for every day!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being a caregiver to my parents when they needed me was amazing. My mother died of Alzheimer's Disease and my Dad died of cancer. I was able to retire and give them the care that they deserved in their last 10 years of life.
I also loved my visit to Spain and Italy, especially the Amalfi Coast and Positano.

Teach, Learn, Share

My best contribution to this community will be my interest in learning from and about others that I meet. I care about their happiness and concerns. I am willing to share my thoughts and feelings which tends to help others open up to me which in turn creates a closeness or bond for the time we are together and sometimes for many years to come. I am quite independent and not looking for relationships that have an underlying "need". Sharing and exchanging stories is fun and thought provoking. I love having fun with people who are independent and open to life as we know it in this world.
