I love life – And just like you, life’s hardships, battles, adversities, and the subsequent overcoming of these struggles have not escaped me. It's our shared humanity. My recent encounter with cancer freshly altered my outlook. It has introduced a renewed focus and an authentic enthusiasm for life. Positivity, faith, memories in the moment, a can-do attitude, and encouraging others now lead me on.
I love to inspire and be inspired – You are my inspiration. My heart beats for you and your triumph. I fully believe, you can do whatever you aspire to. Aim high, find positive and be brave. Make your life a message worth reading. Be an encourager, try new things and never give up. This is the only life we get. Let's make it count. Together.
I love being healthy and well – I no longer take that for granted! Everyday exercise, nutrition, faith, and a good laugh are an important part of what I do and ultimately who I have become. It feels good to feel good!
I love to learn – Life schools us, doesn’t it? There is not a day gone by where a lesson or two does not beckon me. I truly believe when the student is ready the teacher appears! Along with a degree or two from the school of hard knocks, I have my Masters in Communication and Leadership from Gonzaga University - Go Zags and my Bachelor of Science in Human Development from the University of Oregon ~ Go Ducks.
I love choice – I don’t think hardships change people ~ I think choices do. I think the choices we make amidst the challenges can and will alter the outcome and ultimately who we become. Choices help us reach our potential regardless of the circumstance.
I love Sunshine – That is why my husband and I live in Southern California! We have lived in the rain of the beautiful Pacific Northwest and in the snow of the mountains, but the Southern California is hard to beat.
