Welcome To My Site And Blog!

Being a creative spirit, I am never content for long. I’ve redesigned my website in a quest for my own unique creative place. I wanted a website where I could not only showcase my design work, but also a place where I could share things that have inspired me, made me smile, or I thought was thought provoking. So, turning my site into a portfolio and a blog combined made perfect sense! My site has quickly evolved into my outlet for my journey in life and I plan to dive deeper into topics and causes that are important to me. I have had a great time in putting this site together so far, it’s become a labor of love and I hope that you enjoy it as well!

I was born and raised in Charleston West Virginia in the late 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s. I married and moved to Charlotte, NC in the late 80’s and lived there for 20 years. After divorcing and then after some health issues, I moved back to my hometown of Charleston WV in 2008. I’ve always described myself as shy, sensitive and with a creative heart. I can be outspoken and unapologetic on topics that are important to me. Deep down I’m soft-hearted, very intuitive and have a lot to say.  To know me is to know that I have a soft heart and sometimes my bark can be a little louder than my bite.  I try to find the good in most things, but I can also call it like I see it. To know me is to know that being able to laugh is the most important thing to me. What is life without laughter? Laughter is joy and nourishment for the soul.

Background

I began my career over 30 years ago working as an administrative and marketing assistant for some of the Fortune 500 companies in the U.S. My background is diverse, working for companies such as E.I. DuPont, Day & Zimmerman Engineering Group, J.A. Jones Management Services, United Healthcare, Prudential Healthcare, HQ Global Workplaces, Premier Hospital Alliance Group, Scottish Reinsurance Group, and NeighborCare Long Term Care Pharmacy Services.

My background also includes desktop publishing and project management. To further my creative career, I graduated from the Charlotte Institute of Art and then went on to graduate from Sessions College for Professional Design to extend my creative skill to include graphic, print and web design.

Creative people don't follow the rules, they don't necessarily break them either, they almost always make their own.
