The official “work” version of me is below if that’s what you’re interested in. But are any of us really just our jobs?
Deep down, I’m a communicator. I like words, and I like using words to tell stories, to express feelings, to explain and explore the world around me, and to help others articulate what they’re thinking. Words are one of the most powerful tools we have, and I’m a steward of using them often, well, and wisely.
I’m also a mom of a 10-year old daughter, a pit bull rescue advocate, a hunter/jumper equestrian and an enthusiast of all things geeky, nerdy, and dorky. I’m an INFP, heavy on the F and yes I’m really an “I” (good luck finding me for the day or two after a big event). I’m a true believer in the value and power of emotional intelligence and think we’d all be better served to talk about and through feelings more, not less, even in professional situations. This phase of my body of work and writing is going to center around that as a key theme.
I’ve been a B2B marketing and sales professional for 20+ years. I’ve written books. I’ve raised money for nonprofits. I was a music performance major in college so I can count to 4 over and over again with a great deal of accuracy. I write because I can’t not write. I love my job but I’m not defined by it. I’m a bit of an old soul and a sensitive one. I laugh loudly, speak my mind, and constantly question “why”.
I’d love to know you better, too.
