Welcome to my little space on the web!
Long story short, I am a wife, mom of three amazing little boys and country girl turned internet marketing & social media geek with a passion for photography and design. If you follow my Instagram, you’ll notice that we’re kind of into travel. My hair is never the same color. I am really, really into black and white (you couldn’t tell from this website, could you?). And, I am a passionate creative. I love to photograph, design and create. Combine that with my love and passion for marketing and you kind of get this blog.
This website has changed so much. Today, you’ll find it focuses mostly on my books. This page use to go on and on about what I did BEFORE I was considered a self-published author. I love sharing my variety of passions with all of you, so I still write on my blog.
My background is corporate marketing. I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up (do I yet?) so I got dual BS Degrees in Marketing and Business Administration incase I wanted to go to law school. I was fortunate enough to work with an amazing company for the first four years of my career while earning those degrees. What I learned there continues to stick with me to this day.[column size=one_half position=first ][divider]Why Did I Start Writing Books?[/divider]Honestly, I think I was always meant to write. I love doing so many things. I have been fortunate enough to be able to do whatever felt right at the time. I love having a camera in my hand, but with three boys and a fourth baby on the way, there’s not a lot of time for getting out and photographing and then processing images. I have owned several successful businesses, but built them so big that they stole every second of my time. I opened my marketing business in 2004 and closed it in 2011. I had a team of 32 freelancers working with me, but I was so overwhelmed by the Fortune 500 companies that demanded constant attention from us that I found myself stressed and sick to the point of being bed ridden. In 2012 I opened an apparel company and quickly grew it to a six figure company. I sold out in late 2014 when I realized I was right back in a cycle of never having time for family. I have taken a year off to ground myself, play around a little and start writing, something I should have done years ago. [/column] [column size=one_half position=last ]
