I am a writer at heart.
I’m a keen observer of the world, people, relationships, and detail. When I write, I feel better. I can breathe more easily and, in that space, share my creative spark with you.
My mission is to inspire you to embrace your creative journey and make positive impact.
Curiousity fuels growth, and I am endlessly curious. I’ve learned growth is not always comfortable, but it’s always worth it. I love the library and actual books. With paper pages. I love the endless resources for online learning from YouTube to MIT videoes and everything else. (I’ve got a couple courses myself!)
When I’m not writing, I’m usually thinking I should be writing, but I’m also… A recovering perfectionist. An enthusiastic yoga girl. An improving mountain biker. A mom of two boys. A gardener and buyer of too many houseplants. Hummingbirds are my spirit animal. And I could live on chips and salsa. (Thin chips. Not too greasy.)
I’ve been an educator my entire career from elementary school to university. Making sure kids and adults celebrate and build on their strengths is extremely important to me. Earning my Master’s in Sociology taught me that taking positive action is just as (if not more) important as researching what’s wrong. I also learned it’s difficult to separate myself from the woes of the world. It’s hard not to take negative cirucmstances to heart, but we all can make our biggest contribution with positive, kind actions.
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares to other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to the keep the chanel open. – Martha Graham
