About Me

Professionally, please see my Work History page.

Personally, I am a mother to three daughters, five grandchildren and one great granddaughter.  I have faced many challenges both great and small, and suffered many hardships along the way, which has made me strong and independent and grateful to be alive. 

My life has taught me to be courageous and confident.  Where others have turned negative, I have remained hopeful and positive ... traits that I instilled in my girls ... in which I am so very proud of them. 

Life is a journey and I have not been afraid to explore many of the possibilities that came along the way.  Life has also been a puzzle, a maze and a mystery filled with experiences and adventures, which has inspired me to write a book about some of them.   Writing has always been a part of me, including a published work of nonfiction in 1990.  I suppose it always shall ...

I discovered graphic design and website building in 1996 and have enjoyed exploring my creative side which I built up into a side domain hosting business that continues on to this day ... although with all the free social media it has slowed down greatly.

I am semiretired working part-time for RE/MAX since 2015.  I’ve been in the real estate industry since 1991.

I have lived in California, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, Hawaii and Arkansas ... and have moved dozens of times in my lifetime, meeting people from all over the world. I have owned 7 homes and sold 6 (living now in the 7th).  Currently I am caregiving my mother.  My step father passed away in 2018 at the age of 91 under my care for a year and a half.  This experience has given me a better understanding of aging and empathy.

As I look back now I can’t help think “What a ride!” and “What’s next?”
because there is always a next.
