I was born in the early ’70s. I grew up as a church-going, nerdy bookworm, and so far have become a wife, mom, thought leader and creative web publishing geek with too many irons in the fire. Currently I’m way too busy taking over the world to ramble on about myself. This will give you the general idea, and if you want to know me better come say hello on social media!

Maker of Yummy Food

Delighting the palates of family and friends since I could reach the stove, or at least since I was 11 years old…


Creative

My life is lived outside the box, and even if there was a box it would be bigger on the inside. I dabble in the visual and verbal arts, but also love music and martial arts.

Enthusiastic

I get excited about a lot of things. This often results in unfinished projects, but I don’t mind. Life is an ongoing adventure and I’m living it to the full.

Committed

My time is fully committed to my family and home life, my friends and colleagues, and my hobbies. I wish I could be everywhere at once, but we all have to choose, don’t we?
