My life has led me on a journey of many roads, some smooth, others rough. All of those roads have led me to the person I am now. Good or bad, I wouldn’t change a thing.

A diverse background and an array of life experiences, have given me amazing opportunities to see the world through a variety of lenses:

Professionally, I worked as a graphic designer for over 25 years in all types of print media and advertising, a managing editor of a Knoxville community newspaper, a marketing manager and second in command in a manufacturing facility, a business development, and sales manager, a social media maven and now as program support coordinator at a local nonprofit.

Personally, the experiences are too vast to showcase here. Let’s just say I am an eclectic personality with a wide variety of experiences.

Sights and sounds, colors and textures fill my world. For me, writing has always been an outlet for cataloging life experiences. I hope you can learn from my mistakes, laugh along with me at my follies, and aspire to smile regardless of the circumstance.
