Introduction

Hi,
My name is Megan. I'm not a fan of distilling individuality into a few paragraph, but I'm going to try and hit some highlights.

I grew up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and they will forever be my home.  I love to do most anything outdoors, especially camping, backpacking, horseback riding, and hiking. I grew up on an organic farm (I drove tractors, machinery, and trucks), but I was raised to be a classical musician as a pianist and cellist and loved any and all of the arts. My Papa taught me to change my oil, my dad showed me what tomatoes should taste like, my mom groomed my love of all things medical, and my mentor taught me to appreciate dissonance in life and the symphony. My HUGE family taught me patience even when I didn't feel like it, and what it really means to roll with the punches.

History and Economics were my favorite subjects in high school, but Organic Chemistry and Neuroscience took their place in college. Now I spend all day getting to know the worst sides of mother and human nature as I trudge on towards my Masters degree (don't be fooled-I love every second of it!). The next big goal is my M.D. so I can give someone the chance to pursue life with abandon as I have been given.  

I am definitely the go-getter personality, but I also need my down time. I am an INTJ (bonus points if you know what that means), and an irrepressible adventure seeker. I'm always up for new places and new experiences--though paragliding over the cliffs and ocean in Peru or learning to tango in Argentina will be hard to compete with. There are a lot of things in my life that have challenged me on every level-physical, spiritual, and emotional. But I see those challenges as moments to redefine who you are and who you want to be. They are moments that teach you to face life with courage, faith, and momentum. Because moving forward is the only way we get to navigate. 

I think I've rambled enough. Otherwise there might be nothing left for a real conversation.

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Something adventurous or unique. There will be more than enough time to be serious later. I think the best relationships are when there is a deep level of friendship shared beyond any romantic aspirations. I want to do something that allows both people to just relax. To me the formality of some dates can make things awkward or difficult to open up and enjoy.

My past relationships have taught me...

You are a team. While it may be easy to take on a responsibility, or attempt to spare your partners feelings or stress levels, you are there to work together. If you can't share both good and bad, your relationship will crack beneath the pressure. Also, be independent. Love being together and sharing your life, but develop interests and things that are separate. Finally, trust is an uncompromisable necessity. Trust is not being perfect, it is the integrity to acknowledge when we have made a mistake, or being honest when something is difficult.

To me, being an Adventist means...

That you have a personal and authentic faith, which is more than a weekly appointment with a pew. I value those who simply live a Christ-like life without pretense.

In five years, I see myself

I used to have a more concrete answer for this question. Until life and God reminded me that I am not in control. What I do know is that I will still be pursuing my passions, loving those around me, and growing every day.

My favorite Bible passage is...

I don't necessarily have one favorite. One I love is Micah 6:6-8. "With what shall I come before the Lord and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

I also really love Isaiah 58:6-7, “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?"
These verses define my life and desire to serve both as a doctor and as a Christian. (As you can see I have a passion for service and social justice).

When I feel as if I am failing in these things I turn to Lamentations 3:21-24. "Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”(!--span)
