I’m a lover of nature and good coffee. I am reaching my “Junior Years”, yet refuse to grow old. My soul shines any time there’s music to dance to, or games to play. If it spurs smiles, comes with a fresh flower or cup of Java, count me IN.


I LOVE telling stories…and boy, do I have a story for you! I’m all about family, and I have FIVE FAMILIES, so plenty of juicy material to share...Prepare to "embrace the grace", because the truth is often stranger than fiction.


I enjoy spurring conversations on tough topics that are common among us, but tend to challenge the norm. It’s a healthy way to find true happiness, sharing our stories. 


I'm a devoted wife to my first and only husband, and we spend our spare time with my son's travel hockey team, shaking fingers at referees in ice rinks around the country. We enjoy travel for pleasure, work, and third-world missions. My family is a grateful bunch, we pray together and recognize the buckets of blessings we have been given - and we give all the glory to God.


After a career in commercial real estate development, I hung up my pink hard hat to make a BETTER difference in the world. I began writing and speaking in 2010 to combine my environmental and humanitarian passions, and never looked back at the not-so-fun rat race. After years of writing a column, blogging and a couple of books (In H.O.P.E., Think Outside the Bin and War & Pennies), I'm entering my twilight years with a little boogie in my step to inspire you to find your own happy health. Let's play!
