My journey to healthful living started a long time ago. While growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, I was the perennial tomboy, spending whole summers swimming, sailing, water-skiing, and camping by Lake Allatoona.
My passion in nature and a love of research led me to UNC-Chapel Hill, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Biology. At college, I discovered my career path and the love of my life: my best friend and husband. I'm thankful that Kent, a chemist, has always been by my side, starting all those years ago, when he helped me survive analytical chemistry class. We've been married over thirty years and have two adult sons.
Our younger son Kevin has had life long health challenges, starting at 17-months old with a diagnosis of diabetes and resulting brain injury. I've searched tirelessly to find answers for him. He's helped me realize the truly worthwhile things in life.
I worked in medical research for over 24 years at UNC-Chapel Hill, with the majority of those years studying the role of inflammation in chronic degenerative diseases. Though I loved the science in my research career, I needed a more flexible schedule that would work with my family's needs.
In 2004, I became a USANA Health Sciences Associate. USANA offered an opportunity that helped me manage my previously hectic schedule and my passion to help others discover the benefits of holistic living.
I was part of an international program for social media marketers called Social Traffic in early 2008. It included daily tasks, education and review of most of the social media platforms of that time. This was an incredible learning experience for incorporating the entire scope of internet marketing.
My expertise in internet marketing combined with my organization's international presence allows me to work with and train new team members across the world. Shared Success
is looking for leaders who are computer literate or trainable with excellent people skills, self-motivation skills, and a desire to make a difference in the health and financial picture of thousands. This is not a J-O-B. This is a business venture, with a low-risk-high-return ratio.
Health and Wellness has always been a focus in my career. I empower others to take steps that improve and maintain their health and the health of their family. I suggest the the first step toward optimal wellness begin with the True Health Assessment
. By incorporating high quality supplements from USANA Health Sciences as well as making specific lifestyle changes Healthy Edge

My experience in medical research brought me face to face with thousands of people experiencing the pain and suffering of chronic degenerative disease. Observing the challenges faced by the doctors and patients alike in relieving symptoms and renewing their health emphasized the need for disease prevention.
