Me, In Real Life
I am a wife and mother who likes to bake and cook gourmet meals as much as I enjoy negotiating opportunities for my public relations firm clients. I covet time spent with friends as much as I crave downtime in complete, blissful silence. I hear I’m an introverted extravert—whatever that means. Reading a good book in any genre is golden. Oh, and I’m a recovering sneak eater.
More than anything, I love Jesus. I am a Jesus girl. I want to live a life that is acceptable and pleasing to Him. But, I guarantee you I’m not too stuffy.
I love my family—all of them, and there are a lot of us.
Fun Facts About Me
Oreo cookies are my weakness.
I have an Instagram account devoted to planning, productivity, and praying.
I detest the taste of chicken (always have) but make the best wings you’ll ever taste.
Over the past 16 years, I’ve lived in Tennessee, Delaware, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia (4th times a charm).
I wear my glasses so I can hear. (I bet you do too.)
I don’t like to be told what to do. I ordered Fifty Shades of Grey while sitting in church listening to a Pastor rant about why it should not be read. I think I’ve read most banned books.
I’m a feminine woman who can’t style hair. Hey, I can do my own makeup. We can’t be perfect at everything.
The place I write is called “The Data Den of All that is Awesome” and it goes wherever I go.
…Speaking of Writing
Outside of God and the people I love, words are my passion. There is something about the way a writer can use words to evoke emotion, entertain and inspire others to act that moves me. It moves me so much that I write something daily.
Now, more than any other time in my life, I’m ready and willing to share. I want my words to entertain, encourage, and equip you to build, grow, and live in your purpose.
I like meeting new people and am currently conducting free 20-minute consultations. Would you like to pick my brain?
