I’m the classic story of the kid standing in a chair at the stove, helping mom with dinner starting from around age four or five.

I decided to just go for it! Sounds simplistic, but believe me it wasn’t. I did a lot of praying, talking with my husband, asking friends, and then… just did it. One of the scariest things I’ve done actually, but life is short and it came down to the thought that I’d rather have the regret of failing than the regret of not even trying. Read more>>

I’ve always loved horses, but my love for people with special needs came later in life. After a career in Information Technology, I was looking for a way to give back. My mother had a long battle with Ovarian Cancer, and riding horses helped give me something that completely took me away from the stress and anxiety that surrounds caregivers. Read more>>

I’ve always been obsessed with our universe, stars, constellations and who we are as humans. I started drawing various shapes and simple portraits in grade school.
