Welcome to my website!  I’m so glad you came to visit me.  By the time you finish looking around here, I think you’ll be glad you did too!  Let me introduce myself.  I am a journalist, wife, and mother.  I created this website because I believe I have something to contribute to the world – knowledge.  It took me a while to figure that out, but here’s how it happened.  For years, people have confided in me – asking for training, life advice, career coaching, and mentoring.  One day, I was in the middle of my lengthy commute to work.  As I crossed the largest bridge in Tampa Bay, it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I am meant to help others in this capacity on a regular basis.  My heart was so full when I discovered that, and it still is.  I am fortunate to have found my two career loves:  serving the public as a journalist and serving others as a teacher and mentor.  One way I felt I could reach anyone who needed advice was to start a blog and post training information there.  It grew to a podcast, and there are some more exciting things on the horizon.  So please keep visiting this page for updates, and if I can ever be of help to you, contact me.  I am a great listening ear; I’m honest; and what you see is what you get.

All the best,
