Who am I?
I grew up on Long Island, New York and moved to St. Louis, Missouri when I turned 21. Over the years I would live in Charleston, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., Atlanta, GA and Denver, CO.
I have been married for 26 years and have two children. My son is a personal trainer and masseuse and my daughter is a an Interior Design.
My early career focused in the field of Human Resources and later I worked with churches developing spirituality and connection with people of all ages.
I am certified in Life and Christian Spiritual Coaching with Life Purpose Institute. I am also a Certified Practitioner in the Enneagram Narrative Tradition and received my Plant Based Nutrition certification from eCornell.
I am interested in Personality Typing through the process of the Enneagram and I am interested in the research of good health through food choices as a long time vegetarian turned vegan turned whole food plant based.
I am blessed to have wonderful friends that support me and make me laugh. These are the ladies I enjoy doing activities with like monthly get togethers, movie nights, book reviews, Enneagram sessions, the Dirty Girl Mud Run, Wanderlust and 5K Wine Run.
I believe in the benefits of pilates, meditation, yoga and physical fitness. In addition to yoga, I weight train and run. I completed my fifth half marathon this past March in Sarasota, Florida and look forward to running it again next year.
I love to travel and have spent time in Paris, France; Gulf Shore, Florida; Maui, Hawaii; Athens & Santorini, Greece; Rome & Tuscany; Italy and New York, New York. I hope to return to Napa Valley, California in the near future.
I am an avid reader and post information about the books I read and enjoy on my blog.
The most important fact about me is that I am also the proud owner of a sweet dog named Lucy.
