There’s so much to tell you, but in an attempt to keep from boring you until you want to gouge your eyes out, I’ll make this as brief as I can.

What I’ve been doing:
I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime. I’ve been a secretary, a nail tech, an English teacher at both secondary and college levels. In between times, I’ve sold both Avon and Mary Kay (I know!) I freelance and ghostwrite online and off.

I received both my Bachelors and Masters in English from the University of Toledo. While there, I was lucky enough to receive the Helen M. Fields Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement in the Field of English in 2007.

My undergrad concentration was Creative Writing.  I’ve finally finished my book Be a Blessing: 77 Ways to Bless Others. No, it’s not published yet, I’m currently researching my options, but if you know of a good Christian book publisher, please let me know – you can leave it in the comments section below.

Church Ministries:

In the past, I’ve been the editor of my church newsletter (youth department), a part of the Mime Ministry (yes, white paint and robes – watch the videos of you have moment), and regular attendee of the Monthly Women’s Book Club and weekly Bible Study. I was also a member of the Annual Women’s Retreat Committee.

I love traveling with my family. We’ve traveled all around the eastern US: Chicago (my fav), Detroit, Cleveland, Virginia Beach (another fav), Myrtle Beach, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Mississippi and wherever else in between. I eventually want to make it out west and see places such as LA, Vegas, and Phoenix. I’d like to go on a few mission trips to places like South Africa and Jamaica, maybe even Haiti. One day I’d like to tour in England, France, Mexico and China just because.

I love arts and crafts: sewing, painting, jewelry making, photography and scrap-booking.

I collect Barbies, Brats dolls and I love doll house miniatures.

Although this the last bit of info I’m offering about myself, it’s actually the most important and what I’m most proud of:
I’ve been married for 17 years with three children.

Anyway, that is me. If you’re still reading I guess that means you still have both of your eyes and have chosen not to gouge them out in boredom. :) Thanks!
