After more than twelve (12) years as a Consultant (Small, Women-Owned, and for-profit Social Enterprises), I came to the realization that although I had found formulas that worked for everyone else, I had none that worked for me. What began as a brief hiatus, has through many ups, downs, disappointments and perseverance, led me to create spaces for my own voice and unique blend of skills, and to create platforms for others seeking to do the same.
While I never set out to be an author, the creative spaces I dwell in now, continue to provide opportunities to do what I love most – grow ideas from concept to launch, encourage people to challenge their notion of impossible, and create solutions that connect, empower, and engage women along their journey. If you’ve participated in 90 Days to Launch, or any of the #StrongWomenWrite events, you know what I mean. I hope my newest project, Strength, Faith & Writing, will do so on a more broader scale.
On a personal note, I try my best to keep God first; family second; and all else, third. I am vegan, collect red umbrellas, have tea time daily, and treasure time with my husband and children.
Welcome to my ‘third’,
