I'm a labor and delivery nurse at a down-on-its-luck hospital in San Francisco, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Being a nurse is more than just a job; it's a vocation, even a calling, and it's the very best part of who I am.
I was born and raised in New England and still speak openly and frankly the way most Yankees do; put me in a room full of fellow Bostonians and some adult language will definitely occur. Like all New Englanders, I can be sarcastic, but I have a kind heart and it's easy for me to care about people.
When I'm not catching babies I'm a bit of a homebody, preferring to read books and snuggle with my boyfriend and my two gentle, elderly cats rather than go out and party. I was an English major before I went to nursing school; words, especially when arranged into poetry, are my passion, and I can't live without reading.
What gets me out of the house is the world of nature and animals--put hiking boots on me or put me in a kayak and I am the happiest girl alive. I have a deep affinity for animals of all kinds, so if I find a spider in your house that looks like it needs a new home, I won't kill it--I'll just put it outside. I always miss my cats dearly when I'm traveling, so if you have cats at your place I'm happy to feed them, scoop their litter box, and make a cozy space for them on the bed at night.
I've been called a neat freak by more than a few people, and I'll be sure to leave your space as neat and tidy as it began. I enjoy a glass or two of wine or a small tumbler of good bourbon, but I don't like to drink to excess, and my time experimenting with other substances has long since passed. College was fun, but it's over, y'know? I find loud noises almost physically painful, so you'll never find me in a room with the TV or music blasting.
I will admit to being a coffee addict, and I take the time to hand-grind my beans every morning for the best, freshest cup possible.
