So, who am I and why do I need chocolate? I am a creative, designer, consultant, trainer, artist. Why do I need chocolate.....oh come on. Why do we need anything BUT chocolate, it is fabulous. And like an old friend in celebration or in stress, it is always welcome. Besides a chocolate addict, I am so many things and aspire to be so many more.

So what is this site all about? Well, if you read my work experience below, you will see that I have had a variety of jobs, and have met a ton of really smart and talented people. Some of them have some great things to say, but most are too busy to maintain a full blown I decided to make a place where they could come and post from time to time and share what they are thinking and the cool things that they have found. If you have something to share, we'd love to see it too!

I love to read, and have great conversations how to live an authentic life, inspired and fully living your genius. Join me as I ponder how to grow in becoming inspired, motivated, and fully engaged in life.

Here is a brief rundown on me:

Background: ND Farm girl,. Graduated with 3 students in my class. Great family.

Education: Concordia College, Moorhead, MN, BA Business Administration, Communications & Marketing with an emphasis in Advertising

Work experience: I have kind of a varied work experience, was recruited several times for new jobs by clientèle. I have learned a lot with each job I have taken and met some great people along the way. So, I have worked at; a prepreshouse doing Mac & Scitex work, a photofinisher managing the digital imaging department, a printing company doing color correction and system administration, an advertising agency as a designer, a newspaper as the web producer, and as the Graphics Director and adjunct instructor at Concordia College in Moorhead. Today, I own my own design and consulting business. Whew, let me just say I while I have had some great ones, I like my boss now the best.

Photography: I love to shoot, I don't necessarily do it for hire, but is a nice way to get out into the world, and focus on the beauty of it all. You will find some galleries of my shots on this site. Not all fabulous, but I have a great time getting out there and just having fun. I currently shoot with a Nikon D80 camera.

Other interests: Painting, chalk drawing, printmaking, mosaic, stained glass, sculpture, glass slumping. I love to travel, and to take photos while I am there.

Family: Yes! I have one and love them tons. Husband; Tom. Daughters; Hope & Megan. Dog; Moxie
