I am a Minnesota gal, who has been in Oregon for almost 2 years. The move has been wonderful so far, as the Pacific Northwest has much to offer. I am passionate about nature and outdoor recreation, and love getting out to explore the surrounding area. While hardly more than an amateur in most activities I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, and most other opportunities that present themselves.
I stay busy with my work as a dental hygienist, and taking classes of interest on the side - currently learning Spanish and salsa.
I have always got along great with my roommates and still remain good friends with them all - one of them who helped me make the move to Oregon.
The following quote is a good general guideline for life: "find life experiences and swallow them whole. travel. meet many people. go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. try everything. exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life"
