Always seeking out a better me. Pursuing better health and enriching my mindset so I can be of more benefit to you. 

I used to describe myself as a bridge, but people walk over bridges, now I'm a connector. 

Besides my children, writing is my first love. I'm an ex-pat Brit, by way of Australia, and the US is now my home. I'm building  a thriving online presence here in the midwest, and I'm innately proud of my local community and its commitment to thriving and flourishing. If I can play any part in that, I'm grateful.

I had driven my car out to the dealership from Bloomington and did not have an appointment, but feared for my family's safety as the car was intermittently stalling. Corey explained that he was booked out until the following week, but they managed to fit my car in AND get it fixed within 14 hours. I had a pretty sweet upgrade to drive while I waited, too! A perfect experience!
