I've been blogging since 2012.
It’s no coincidence that’s less than a year after my second divorce, and what I thought was the end of my goal-oriented life. I write about unifying life experiences—often the stuff people think but don’t say out loud.
You will find posts on both overcoming traumatic events and achieving goals including the following topics:
- having cancer (leukemia) and a Bone Marrow Transplant
- mom/daughter dynamics
- raising a teenager
- dating as an almost 40-year-old (not) virgin
- becoming an avid marathoner
- and empty-nesting.
Oh…and I write a lot about leadership, career development, corporate culture and USING YOUR VOICE in the workplace. #changeyourtone.

Living Authentically & Making Good Decisions
“Maybe he or she will love me more” more if I just do more. This formula never holds true.

If I just don’t sin (as much), then God will love me.
