I have been married to a really great guy for more than half my life. We have two daughters, all grown up and on their own and a great son-in-law. Both daughters are amazing, independent and lovely women – we are very proud of them. We are up to three grands – two girls and one boy. I’m here to tell you, being a grandparent is everything you’ve ever heard and so much more! We are also a home of five dogs – two cairn terriers and three mini schnauzers. I love bird watching – so don’t be surprised to find photos or references to birds in my posts.
I can choose from an alphabet soup of letters to put after my name – it just depends on what I’m doing. I have a bachelors’ degree in interior design, am NCIDQ certified and licensed and registered to practice interior design (though I don’t.) I completed my MBA in 2011 while working full-time – I never said I was sane. I am a passionate advocate for education of high school students about the consequences of impaired driving and speak regularly for a program called Sudden Impact. I got my CZT (certified Zentangle teacher) in February of 2011. I just wanted to learn Zentangle from its founders, Rick and Maria, and had no ambitions about teaching. After attending the CZT workshop, I realized it was important to share and pay it forward. So here I am. Welcome and I hope you are inspired to join me in my quest for tranquility.
