I am an energized person who travels extensively whenever the opportunity arrises. As a teacher and an artist, I adore taking in the cultural experiences of people from all over the world. I teach in a very multicultural setting and know several languages. I have lived on 5 continents and traveled to 41 countries. I have friends all over the world and good friends in my local area too! I am a mother of 4 adult children, and have two grandchildren. Family means so much to me and we are all very close. For entertainment I like the arts, visual art, theater, foreign film, horseback riding, hiking/trekking, any sport on the water, gardening and exploring new places.
