A Winding Road


My first three and a half decades were defined by movement. During that time, I lived in Oregon, Alaska, Tennessee, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Florida. I explored England, Scotland, Wales, Italy, France, Germany, and Austria. And the movement didn’t end with actual travel. Though I have a B.A. in English Education, my career path went through phases of teaching, writing, editing, curriculum development, and content marketing. While this kind of winding route is not for everyone, it has allowed me to see life as an adventure, with exciting twists and turns. Because of the phenomenal sightseeing I have done along the way, I have many treasures of understanding and experience—of knowing—to bring to my work now.


Below is a quick list of landmarks that have influenced me on my trek:
