Family really is everything. As a young girl I dreamed of being a teacher, a doctor, a traveller, a writer, and more than anything, a mother. I never saw any of those dreams as mutually exclusive, but rather completely inclusive, each one empowering the next.  Thank heavens for that!  I worked hard to travel and see the world, dedicated myself to my school studies, and continued to teach and connect with the people around me as my children were born.

Alongside my husband and best friend, I get to live in many places, learning along with my children that resilience can be strengthened and that lasting friendships are everywhere we give our heart and hands.

As we have lived and moved all over, I have taught, performed, studied and researched, written and shared, and have learned that women everywhere have incredible potential and power for good. As my personal endeavors have seen success, I love to help others do the same.

I love the works of Bach and Beethoven. I love the mountains and seeking out the best places wherever I am. Macarons are truly my favorite.  And laundry is my least favorite.

I feel passionate about sharing our individual talents, that we each have a calling and purpose to our life, and that all the verses of our “song” don’t need to be performed at the same time. My hope with my presence here, is that others will be inspired to dream, to speak up and out, to do good, and to be excited about loving and learning, and sharing.
