  About Me
I lived in New York for 13 years, relocated from Atlanta, GA, but grew up in Virginia. I am in a domestic partnership, but for all relative purposes am single. I worked in the financial sector since arriving to New York. I worked as a Marketing Manager at HSBC Bank located at 452 Fifth Avenue from September 24, 2001 to August 20, 2012.

I like to travel, go to museums, dine out as well as cook, shop, read, watch documentaries, go to the beach, ride my bike, occasionally jog, watch movies and certain tv shows.

While I have no children of my own I typically adore them. I have a niece, and 6 nephews, whom when I visit VA I collect as many of them as I can to spend the nite with me while I am there, go to Kings Dominion, Barnes and Nobles to read. I have volunteered as a mentor to a middle school and high school student over a spand of 3 years with iMentor. I taught a curriculum at a High School for one class period a week as a Junior Achievement volunteer. I volunteer occasionally at City Harvest. I am quite active when it comes to social economics and responsibility.

Additional Experiences/Qualifications/Preferences:
My experience is extensive in Corporate America. I know initially this may deter anyone looking for someone who has devoted their life to child care. With this said, I have opted to complete a profile, because essentially, I will not have many opportunities to take a job in which I can feel passion and genuinely smile and laugh while there. This is what I know to be true when your hanging out with children. If the expected salary for teaching wasn't so low, I would have become a teacher, so this is the next best thing. Not that I think it matters to most of the parents who may read this, I am willing to provide my actual resume per your request.
