Personal Information:
My name is Kimberlynn. I am Irish-American (57% Irish based on ancestry DNA). I am especially proud of my Irish heritage. My family hails from the province of Ulster, in Antrim, Belfast, Derry, Donegal, and Down; and the province of Leinster in Dublin. I grew up in Los Angeles County (Wilmington, Long Beach, Compton), but I have lived in the Central Valley of California (Visalia / Porterville) for the past 27 years. I plan to move to Seattle, WA after graduation to work as a therapist. Once I am licensed as an LMFT I will go into private practice. I am very interested in volunteering my therapeutic services as a United Nations Volunteer (UNV) for refugees in war-torn countries.

Other Information:
I have an AA in social science, a BS in psychology, and am working on an MSC/MFCT

I don't watch much TV - although I am insanely addicted to Criminal Minds - I love me some Dr. Spencer Reed. I do read A LOT. I love to read paranormal stuff - especially if it comes in a series. My current favorite is the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

    Thank you. am very blessed to have so many sparkfriends who care. I think sparkpeople are some of the best people I've ever known.

    I don't know how to add Secrets of Success to our pages. You might have to ask technical support.

    Right now I have some extreme challenges in my life and am struggling with them but I'm trying to avoid negative behavior and adopt new ways to cope. Not always easy but necessary. I look for simple things to make things better. I recognize I'm not perfect and will make mistakes but I forgive myself and move on. I'm glad you are back!!!!

    Thought I'd pop by and wish a blessed Litha to a new member of the group and find a fellow proud Irish girl. Who is obsessed with Criminal Minds! (My partner just made me start watching.) Who doesn't love a little Dr. Reed now and again?

    Hi and thanks for the goodie! Regarding getting in to mountain climbing and rock climbing (related, but different endeavors, although there may be some crossover), I started by hiking, so see if you can find a local hiking group. Get some good hikes under your belt, and see if they have any "peak bagging" hikes. That's how I started. Once you hit the top of a peak, you never look back! It's just an awesome experience...

    For rock climbing, you can start learning in an indoor rock climbing gym, unless you have friends with a lot of experience who can show you the ropes (literally!).
