More About Me 

List of Things about Me in no Particular Order 

  • I am an optimistic realist. As the optimist, I approach life with enthusiasm and a love for life, the universe and everything.  As the realist, I prefer my routines and have a plan for just about everything in my life. 

  • I am a Mom of two fabulous boys, now men. I think of them as my two greatest teachers in life, the universe and everything. 

  • I am a wife. My husband is one of my stabilizing anchors on this journey and my best friend.

  • I believe in moving every day. It is my most favorite mental wellness go-to. If I get stuck in my head, I know it is time to move my body.

  • I love THEATER - onstage and backstage and audience member.  Mostly these days, I am glad to be an audience member!

  • I love to watch/not watch scary, (I cover my eyes sometimes), suspenseful and supernatural movies (not horror movies). I feel the tension and the release is sort of healing. 

  • I like to read books - mysteries, historical fiction, novels. I made a promise to myself during the pandemic that I would make time to read on the daily. Before the pandemic, I feel like I had stopped reading altogether. 

  • I am natural born helper with excellent listening skills! And I ask good questions.

  • I am dedicated to helping people move forward with their goals and dreams. I connect people with their cheerleader - their inner voice that says “YES! I CAN and YES! I WILL!”   I also help people quiet that voice inside that holds them back. 

  • I understand the challenge of first steps forward. I have lived the fear of the unknown and the fear of failure. And I have taken those scary first steps toward the fears and indeed experienced moments of “failure” I now know were lessons along the stepping stones of life. 

  • Life Moves Pretty Fast and I will hold you accountable to your decisions and plans to move forward!
