About Me:

Live in Houston but spent 8 years in Salt Lake, 30 in Chicago (immigrated from The Hague). Full time director of operations; also working on completing BSBA at Purdue. Active Church member. Love the Gospel. Convert of 23 years. Sharing is important to me as is having time to myself (I’m an introvert who can be an extrovert when need be). Had many struggles, but an eternal optimist. Music : classical, symphonic metal, Enya, going to the symphony (used to sponsor Utah Symph at Abravanel), easy listening, dance music. I am NOT into: camping, hunting, fishing, swimming. Would like to learn to ski. Tennis is my favorite sport. Miss doing home teaching. Have 3 children, 3 adult grandchildren. Love animals – esp. rescues. Only 1 cat now. I collect bears and pictures of wolves. Was caregiver for my wife last 5 years until she passed recently. I find lot of peace in knowing where she is. Looking to meet new temple worthy individuals. P.S. I know we all have a lot we’ve had to deal with in our lives so whatever has happened in the past is in the past.

Who I'd Like to Meet:

Someone who likes a variety of music and has an attitude of gratitude about life. (I know it's a corny saying, but being grateful is an important part of life to me). The person does not have to be athletic, but should be health conscious. Should enjoy sharing - whether it's a song, an idea, a spiritual concept, a drive or just looking at nature. Should have a healthy outlook (positive) on life.

How I feel about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was not raised in the Church and wish that I had been so I could have served a mission, but had a major event in my life which gave me the opportunity to serve others by teaching the Gospel for about a year. Having run a Church of different faith (Christian Science; Not Scientology) - it has given me a great appreciation for the selfless dedication of so many members that I have seen in the Wards I've been in. I have a deep testimony of the efficacy of the Church and the Book of Mormon and the impact they can have on our lives.
