WANT! (well, the dog wants but maybe I want it more)
A dog with a job is a happy dog. Whether you are home or away, offer your dog adaptive all-day play.

#8. Never having a stock answer for “whats your favorite movie?” type questions because those things are always in flux for you and based on your current obsessions
Always being the one to initiate plans but never really caring what the destination is, so everyone ends up yelling at you to "just pick!"

Story
Tagline
software product manager, aromatherapy junkie, history lover, & indie concert-goer.
Introduction
Music and aromatherapy... those are my passions!

Chicagoan. Natural redhead. Happy mama of a blue crown conure.

Am fascinated with all things related modern pop culture and communication such as social media, mobile technology, and blogging. Love "learning" history through watching old movies or listening to audiobooks. Also a big fan of documentaries and PBS. Big believer in the benefits of aromatherapy and almost always have essential oils diffusing.

I have been lucky enough to work in eCommerce since 1998 as part of several amazing initiatives with some great people. I currently maintain a position as Sr. Product Manager supporting product reviews and customer community sites for a large national retailer.

Not enough? I also like to take pictures, explore new places, make websites/blogs, doodle, and try out new recipes. I have an active mind and like to stay busy. I love to go hiking and to be with nature. I laugh at myself every day because i am a dork and get myself into amusing situations. When in doubt, I meditate and then curate a music playlist reflecting my current mood.
