I am originally from Buffalo, NY, but transplanted myself in Vermont after college. I have a three year old son who keeps me pretty busy and a baby who doesn't always let me sleep. I run a home-daycare, although I am a high school teacher by training. I see myself as the kind, patient, go-with-the-flow type. I was raised knowing that "please" and "thank you" will get you a lot of things. Respect and communication are important to me. I've lived abroad and love meeting new people and seeing the diversity of our world. I like being outdoors, working on various projects, and spending time with family. I tend to over-extend myself sometimes with everything I do. I am interested in too many things to say no sometimes! I love helping people, singing and creating things.
