Hi guys.  Thanks for swinging by the site.

I am a wife, mom of three, program developer, author, and speaker.

I have a background in programming and community development, coupled with innovative event creation and implementation.

When my second son was 18 months old, we were in a car accident.  The experience was life changing for me and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I had to make a career change.

Shortly after the accident I was offered a contract job for LESS than half of my salary.  I leaped at the opportunity to work from home and never looked back.  It hasn't always been the easiest choice, but I know that I made the right choice.

As my children grew I saw a lack of children's programming and started to develop and implement programs to fit the niche.  It wasn't until a friend of mine and I developed a healthy living initiative that was designed to get kids moving, yes this was before the days of Michele Obama, that I found my passion.  We licensed the program to an organization and were hired to implement it.  We rolled out the program with 15,000 students in upstate New York.

My desire to incorporate food into the conversation didn't fit with that model,   so I created, licensed and implemented a Kids Cooking Club with a grocery retailer and spent over 12 years traveling in six states cooking with children and families.

Along the way I became an author of a book titled Fidget Grows a Pizza Garden.  And, I have a whole new cast of characters called the Better Bites Bunch.

As for now, I still love working my life's work around the most important people in my life: my husband and kids. 

P.S. Here are 3 facts you'd never guess about me...

1.  I just started drinking coffee in 2020.

2.  I read my magazines from back to front.

3.  I have met Ree Drummond twice AND she complimented me on my dress = ❤️ (made my day)!
