As a mid-life mom and personal growth enthusiast, I enjoy adding an element of creativity to life’s routines by sharing the stories and insights that define my experience. Whether it be parenting and relationship challenges, my pursuit of balance, vegan lifestyle stuff or just pushing the boundaries of my own self-awareness, it’s all more fun with this outlet for expression and sharing with the beautiful, compassionate people of the Internet.  An idea not shared, is like a flower not watered; it cannot grow.  Thank you for watering my flowers!


While going about life, including homeschooling my kids and recently celebrating 25 years of marriage (to the same guy), I have been on a journey of self-discovery.  In 2005, I lost over 100 pounds and have continued to ride the ebbs and flows of life, arriving at a place of greater balance, consciousness and self-love.  I have almost 20 years experience living on a plant-based diet, raising vegan kids and building community. In 2015, I completed my graduate degree in Health and Wellness Coaching from the Maryland University of Integrative Health, gaining new insights and focus.  I love inspiring others to reflect on how they nourish themselves in all areas of life, align their lifestyle and values, and create a purposeful vision for their own lives.  I find the best way to explore my own sources of inspiration, and move towards growth, is to share my thoughts and dreams freely, without expectation of how they will be received.  I welcome your feedback and appreciate your unique perspective.
