Why did you join Friends First Social Group?

I'd like to expand my social network, to make new friends for fun and support. I stay because...WHAT A GREAT GROUP OF FRIENDS!!!!

What is your status? Chose One: Single-never married, Seperated/Divorcing, Single-Divorced, Widowed, Commited Couple, Married


How would you describe your personality type? Choose from: FUN, Extrovert, Never Met A Stranger, Somewhere In The Middle, Quiet, Shy, Introvert, Laid Back, Wild and Crazy.

When I'm having fun and playing I fully let down my hair and my extroverted characteristics abound; definitely a little wild, crazy and fun. But in day-to-day reality, I'm serious, pragmatic, philosophical and pretty laid back.

So what do you think that your biggest personality asset is?

By an overwhelming landslide at Diane's dinner party (in the envelopes) my positive disposition.

What do you enjoy doing the most in life ? Hobbies? Work? Tell us!

I like to socialize and dance so I love this group's events! I come alive in spring and you'll find me outside enjoying warm weather and nature as much as possible - until it gets cold again! I play and teach pool; taught five years for the Schaumburg Township 211 Continuing Education Department, won the 2010 Women's IL State Senior 8-Ball Championship and rank semi-pro with the Women's Professional Billiard Association. I'm working on a masters degree in counseling, to combine it with my certification as a Natural Health Professional. I help people obtain and maintain optimal wellness by integrating holistic natural health practices, on emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual levels. I'm a newly placed intern with Renz Addiction Counseling Center, in Elgin, and intend to specialize in assisting people overcome the nutritional distress caused by the effects of substance use, to include alcohol, illegal and prescription drugs and SAD - Standard American Diet.


I've moved to Phoenix so won't be attending any events anymore. I WILL be missing all my friends from this group and I wish you all the happiest and most merry of holidays!
