Who's run a marathon? Now I'm wondering if that might be worth it... is it?

That's so important Katie. I work as a self development coach, as well as a marketing and blogging consultant. I big part of what I've helped people with in the past was moving through the 5 steps of grief. If you would like any help setting up a blog or doing any marketing I would love to help you promote critter I just think it's so cute and a lot of people will love it. I can direct you to a website that will have tons of the information you need for promoting your website if you would like to check it out. -  just enter your name and email here http://bit.ly/XDMIsv and you'll get connected with my network of teachers and get a TON of FREE info that will help you a lot. Let's get 5,000 people join critter by the end of the week! http://bit.ly/XDMIsv

Hi Google! :) Question for you guys... is G+ your primary social network now, or a major one, or not so major one?

I use them all. I've found people on google+ are more serious about their interest and getting involved in things, while everyone and their dog is on facebook, and twitter is mainly used for back linking.

To perform for the world is to trust it. - The Inner Sky
Introduction
Find me around the web

Hire me for full-stack web development, design & strategy at Yellow Rubber Ball. I love building for the web!

Explore my drawings at Critter Cuddles. Meet Business Bear, Buddha-inspired laughing rocks, Bob, Bob’s minions, and Bob’s minions’ minions in this bright & quirky take on Zen drawing.

Try my web app. Build up healthy mental habits in a playful environment with Critter.Co. Keep your Critter healthy by logging your mood, writing down things you’re grateful for, tracking healthy habits, and more. Feed your Inner Critter!

Make an impact with me in these local things (Durham, NC, or take it to your area):

  • Web Divas Club – like a local Girls Who Code, for middle schoolers. I started this at a school here in Durham, and I’m sharing resources so you can start your own local club.
  • Trashercize – a goofy project that I’m just having fun with: picking up trash for exercise, Prancercise style!

About me:

I live in Durham, North Carolina, USA with my husband Andy. We’re both web developers. His empire consists of SurveyShare (build online surveys) and PennyPipe (sync payment data, like Stripe, with accounting software, like Quickbooks).

I'm a University of North Carolina (MS, math + computer science) and William & Mary (BS, math + art) alumna. I used to live in my left brain as a mathie. I got into math because it was beautiful, like art, and pure. The brain-stretching of my math days shaped me to be a more open-minded person.

In 2009, I started my web development business, Yellow Rubber Ball, and I’ve been doing that ever since, with various adventures on the side – like Critter.Co and Critter Cuddles. Why the critters? Because I have the belief that we are all, at our coreyest core, made of the same stuff – love stuff – and I wanted to share that idea. We are all critters.

I’m an Enneagram 1w2, INFP/HSP with the enthusiasm of a Zumba instructor (which I am*). Energy that burns brightly though quickly, so catch it while you can.  Leo sun. Libra moon. Fascinate catalyst. My artistic heroes are Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss and ExplodingdogCrazy Monster is my spirit animal.

I think we that while we build boxes to feel safe and have a place to start, people and things are better understood holistically. I’d like to see more models that incorporate relationships and negotiations in intention. I think real safety comes from openness and letting go = choosing to have faith in ourselves, in each other, and in the process of life.

I like collecting experiences. I learn a lot from constantly trying new things and doing ordinary things differently. Some of my favorites: I poured my heart & soul into a startup, I shaved my head, I PRed a marathon when I hadn’t been able to run a mile the week before, I became an artist, I took a round-the-world trip solo.

My passion is the quest towards feeling more connected with myself and with the world. It’s a convenient favorite thing, because life provides opportunities for it every moment of every day. 

Speaking of connection:

How can I connect you with what you want?

Have you read the balloon story, about connecting each other with what we’re looking for? I like that. If there’s a way I can help you, please ask. I will, too.
