Please feel free to have a look at my résumé and capabilities by clicking the above links. Meanwhile, I’ll tell you a little more about me. This bio is the stuff you won’t learn about me from my résumé.
I was born and raised in Upstate NY and raised my family there. In 2013 my husband and I relocated to Albuquerque, NM to pursue a new job opportunity for him. In 2015 we made another big move to Austin, TX for a similar purpose. While it was scary and sad to leave our beloved New York State, we knew that growth comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone. We have no regrets, and we travel back to visit our families (or they come visit us in our new surroundings) as often as we are able.
My family and I together hiked each of the 46 mountains in New York’s Adirondack Mountains which had an elevation of 4000 feet or higher. In 2008 my daughter and I hiked Mt. St. Helens in Washington.
In January of 2017 my husband and I traveled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to mush sleds pulled by teams of Alaskan Huskies. There’s no telling where our next adventure will take us, but yes, I’m an adventurer. I love the outdoors, particularly the forests and mountains. I find peace wandering on a trail among birches towering up towards the sun, and I find inspiration on the tippy tops of mountains that touch the sky.
I’m a perpetual entrepreneur. I’m constantly brainstorming new ways to expand my skill set and services/products I offer. To that end, I have a multitude of podcasts I listen to and fill my mind with creative, business, technology and professional development goodness for hours on end every day.
