A little about me!
I love Summer days at the beach, boating, bike riding to a brewery, watching my kids play at a park, rollerblading, gardening, reading and cooking.
I grew up in small town Iowa, 20 miles in the country, riding horses, exploring the woods, swimming in ponds and playing cards. I wanted to be an artist when I grew up, to which I was told there's no money in art - that's why they call them 'starving artists'. Lol! So I decided to be a Marine Biologist and ended up going to 4 different colleges in 4 years and graduating with a Communications degree. Such is life. But during those years, I spent a semester in London, traveled Europe, and couch surfed.
I love those memories.
After college, I went on to work part time for Allegiant Airlines & Hilton, continuing to travel and explore the US. When I decided it was time to "grow up", I dove into Office life and was a Legal Assistant, Surgery Scheduler, Travel Agent and an Office Manager at a Mergers & Acquisitions firm. I expanded my vocabulary. I met awesome people, and some not-so-awesome people. I became more empathetic. My bucket list grew.
I met my husband and started a family. And then came 2020.
So here I am; officially kicked my "grown up" job to the curb and went back to what I always loved - art. (On top of other fun activities - working for Hilton again & subbing at the school.) I wouldn't have made it here without the people in my life supporting me emotionally and financially.. Thank you.
