About Me Stories

Woman sits on log with her back to the camera as two teen girls walk toward the water’s edge.
This candid photo was taken by my husband last week as we watched our teen daughters explore the cove.

A fast walker, fast talker, and fast eater, I do everything too fast. It’s like I am always running out of time. I don’t know why I feel so compelled to be efficient and maximize my time.

I’ve tried to slow myself down — whether it’s trying to chew each bite of food 10 times, deliberately slowing down like I’m walking with a 4-year-old, or speaking slowly like I would with a grandparent who is hard of hearing. Nevertheless, the slower pace never lasts long. I think it may be related to my innate desire to squeeze everything out of life, just like I squeeze lemons down to the last drop!

I have a friend from NYC who told me I was the fastest walking and fastest talking Californian she had ever met. I’ve spent nearly my entire life in California, with no memories of NYC (where I was born) and only a few memories of Miami (where my younger brother was born but we moved when I was a preschooler).

I always test as ESTJ and I’m a classic Type A person. These two tidbits likely tell you a lot about me already. I’m earnest, cheerful, helpful, and goal-oriented. I’m the one who gently nudges the team along when I work on group projects.
