Story

Tagline Doing my best to live, love, laugh, learn, and leave a legacy!
Introduction I'm a corporate sales professional turned writer. I went from worrying about increasing my professional value to following my moral values. I left a six-figure salary to save my marriage and followed my husband to a new place to live on a one-fifth of our old salary. Don't feel sorry for me! I've never been happier!

Writing is an old friend of mine. I majored in journalism and began my career writing for newspapers and producing the nightly NBC news. However, my idealism left me for the lure of Procter & Gamble's paycheck. I worked for P&G for seven years before spending another two years at Colgate Palmolive. While the money was great, the stress on my family reached its height when my husband left me to pursue his dream of medical school. We lived apart for one year while I clung to corporate security, before realizing that I was losing my family. I then sold everything and cut the cord of fear of the unknown to change my life, and my perspective, forever. Now, I'm finally doing what I love most - writing, running, swimming, biking, and taking care of my family.
