Carrie Lorman, 49, may have traded Southern California palm trees for Atlanta grits in 2003, but she always has been drawn to the South.

Her love for country music, her profession as a registered nurse and her activity with the Marcus Jewish Community Center keep her busy, but everything takes a back seat to family. You can often find Carrie on the sidelines cheering on her son’s basketball team, and she’s active in the PAL Program of Jewish Family & Career Services. We think Carrie is Such a Catch, so let her tell you a little about herself.

1. What are you looking for in a partner?
I’m looking for someone kind, intelligent, fun and family-oriented. I think attraction is so important, but a good heart is the most handsome quality.

2. What do you think or have been told are your best qualities?
I am often told that I am warm, kind, sweet and intelligent with a great sense of humor. I am fiercely loyal to my friends and family. The quality that I am most proud of is being an amazing mom.

3. How do you spend your spare time?
I love to listen to live music, play tennis, get lost in a fantastic book, go wine tasting or visit the North Georgia mountains. I am a Disney Cruise junkie and try to go yearly.

4. What is your guilty pleasure?
Any kind of cheesecake!

5. What are some things that are most important in your life? Why are they valuable to you?
My son and my family are the most important things in my life. Although most of my family still lives on the West Coast, I have developed an amazing group of friends in Atlanta who I consider my Georgia family.
