Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am 42 years old, single, a dog& cat owner& a former military brat so I have the travel bug in me. I love being outside, but will admit that fall, winter& spring in the south are my favorite times to be outside! I love movies, lifting weights, reading, singing for fun, & keeping up with world events. I love meeting new people& I especially enjoy people who have varied interests as it makes conversations with them very interesting to me! My dog Mali is a social dog, much like myself, so I love meeting people who like dogs or who own dogs that are willing to play with Mali.

Why are you joining this group?

I am a liberal lady who has been living in a conservative city for almost 5 years now in Jacksonville, FL. I was able to find a nice group of young professional liberals& volunteer for election campaigns in the area while here. I was asked to be Chair for mentors in the New Leadership Council chapter that Jacksonville is starting up but sadly, I won't be able to participate since I am moving to Dallas. I would love to join this group since politics, specifically liberal& progressive politics are important to me. I want to feel comfortable to be able to express my viewpoints & ideas with people in a new city& outside of work& to meet people who share similar interests and ideas.

This group is for TRUE liberals or progressives, and for those who identify as female. Does that describe you?

YES! Ask anyone who knows me well and this describes me. I helped Senator Nelson's team here in Jacksonville during his last re-election campaign, I was asked to be a founding member of NLC, I made campaign calls for President Obama both here and in Pennsylvania & campaign calls for Mayor Alvin Brown, Jacksonville's first Africsn American Mayor& first Democratic mayor since the early 90's. I was invited to hear & meet Mrs. Michelle Obama when she came to Jacksonville as well as Presidents Obama and Clinton. I express my liberal ideas& thoughts at work in a respectful way & I respectfully disagree with conservative political viewpoints with which I don't agree.

Introduction

Hi there! My name is Katrina & I'm moving to Dallas at the end of January. I've worked in higher education all of my life& love it! I am, by nature, a bit of a social butterfly & would love to meet some people w/similar interests in my new home city.
