My tagline is “Living the Lemonaide Life” because I make the most out of circumstances to keep progressing forward. I look for the silver lining hiding behind difficulties and challenges. And it is always there. After I make my way through the difficulty or challenge, I find that I arrive farther along than where I started. And, often I find myself in an entirely new direction, much better than what I had been planning.
As you will see by my blogs, I embrace life. My life changes in the blink of the eye. So I need to be flexible, adaptable, and open to new adventures at a moment’s notice!
I have worked at many jobs, lived many lives, and established many different careers. To date, I’ve been a: mother, teacher, instructor, facilitator, educator, curriculum developer, workshop organizer, coordinator, secretary, payroll clerk, business owner, waiter, day care provider, student, writer, poet, hotel maid, receptionist, dicta-typist, office clerk, store clerk, explorer, traveler, temp, newspaper reporter, and probably many others that I’ve forgotten about! Through it all, the three roles that I have had the longest, and that have kept my interest have been: being a mother, being an educator, and being a writer.
