Who Am I?

I am an adventurer, entrepreneur, educator, writer, and mother, with an appreciation for life and a passion for change!

On the whole, I am a free spirit.....loving life and all the beauty it has to offer.

My life is guided by the principles of humanism, the belief in the oneness of humanity, and a mission to make a difference in every positive way that I can. There is never a dull moment for me because there is always someone that needs a helping hand, some lesson to learn and another to teach, someone to love, and some adventure to take.

Thank you for taking the time to join me on my journey of life!
