Hello! I'm a single mom who lives in Portland, Oregon. I work in health care; care management to be exact. My interests include reading, writing, travel, dance (esp. Latin, i.e. salsa, merengue, bachata), language (I'm either fluent or proficient in Spanish, not sure which, depends on the day :)), culture, dining out, coffee, politics, health care, and of course spending time with my four-year-old daughter. I love meeting new people and gaining new perspectives. I had a great experience after joining this site last summer prior to an extended road trip through the Midwest, and I'm excited for the opportunity to extend the same welcome I felt during that trip.
