Hi all! I’m so glad you are here! I am the mom of two fabulous daughters, Emerson & Elliot and the wife of an airline pilot, Tony.
I earned my degree in Fine Art/Architecture at Portland State University and then worked for over 12 years at an architectural firm as a Drafter/Designer and Proposal Writer. I LOVED it! I worked on schools, jails, fire stations, police stations, homes, and churches.
I was unfortunately diagnosed with Narcolepsy (a sleeping disorder) and had to “retire” from my dream career while making a lot of changes to my everyday life.
As devastated as I was by this diagnosis, I realized that we simply cannot control everything in our lives but we can control how we respond! I have been grateful to spend so much special time with my family and I’m extra grateful to now spend it with YOU!
This disease certainly makes me a bit “quirky” sometimes, but I’m not shy about talking about it! Narcolepsy doesn’t own me or define me, it just adds a little extra seasoning to what makes me who I am. Why be ashamed of something we can’t control?!
No matter who you are, or what you are going through, I’m so glad you’re here! Being a kid is TOUGH! Being an adult is TOUGH! You are figuring out who you are while being pulled by those wanting you to be someone else! It’s these bumpy roads that give us the chance to shine!
Please know, that I’ll take you for exactly who you are right now! Don’t change a thing! You are perfectly imperfect and I am perfectly imperfect too! 😊
The Kindness Club is a place where you can be you and explore your hidden talents, while bringing joy to others! It’s amazing how good it will make you feel when you do something kind for someone else.
Welcome to our club!
