I started writing my blog as a means to connect with others who, like me, are looking for ways to improve their life by combining the wisdom of past, valued experiences and applying them to new and innovative products, services, and opportunities. I am a daughter, a wife of over 33 years, a mother to 3 grown children and their spouses, and a grandmother to 3 adorable grandsons. I value education and am a lifelong learner. I have Bachelor of Science degree in Family Management; have taught at the high school level; have been employed in training and development; and am an experienced speaker to both small and large gatherings. I enjoy meeting new people; making and fortifying friendships; sewing; cooking and baking; working out to maintain a healthy lifestyle; and reading.
