A Bit About Me
Naturally curious, I love learning new things. I devour books, articles and life’s lessons. I enjoy discovering my next favorite restaurant and I delight in exploring new places.
I gave up the pursuit of perfection and set my feet on a new path. Embracing the life I’ve been given, I now cherish simple pleasures:
Tasting that first sip of morning coffee
Glimpsing delicate wildflowers break through the snow
Feeling the resonance of a cello vibrate through me
Hearing my children laugh together
Savoring freshly-picked berries from my garden
Jumping in a pile of autumn leaves
Watching the sun set over the mountains
These moments of pure bliss delight my heart, bring me back into the present moment and remind me I am truly blessed.
Adventuring in the great outdoors also refreshes me, so I make time to get lost in nature as often as possible.
If you find yourself needing marketing strategies, give me a call, send me an email, or come find me along the trail and let’s chat about creative ways to reach your target audience with your life-changing message.

If you've ever homeschooled your children, you understand what it means to be responsible for everything that happens (or fails to happen) regarding your children's education.
If you haven't homeschooled your children, there is nothing I can say that will adequately explain my work experience.
However, the fact that I taught for 19 years says a lot. Either I wasn't half bad at it... or I'm crazy.
