Well hello there, stalker! I’m a full time working mama in the corporate world with three beautiful and spirited tiny humans. I’m a go-getter, a deep thinker and I don't take no for an answer. I try to live my life with a no regrets and no fear mentality.
I've had a passion for writing and storytelling since I first learned how to hold a pencil. It came in quite handy throughout my 10 year career as an award-winning local television news reporter. I learned so much about myself and human beings in general doing that job. You name it, I saw it. But when that profession and those hours got to be too much for my family life, I chose a different career path that allows me to spend more time with the people I love most. When I’m not with my kids or working, you’ll find me at barre class or running (usually at 5 a.m. Yawn.), taking a nap (I LOVE NAPS!), trying to keep my flower gardens alive or writing. I grew up in Central Illinois and love the St. Louis Cardinals and the Fighting Illini.
Behind the Scenes is a little look into my crazy life of trying to balance everything and while staying sane. It’s also a dose of real talk for other moms out there. We’re all doing the best we can, so we might as well laugh (and cry) about it together… right?
