About Me

Let’s pretend we’re speed dating. Here are quick facts about me:

  • I’m 38.
  • Mom to a 5 year old girl with curly hair like me.
  • Married to my other half, J. A., who is a mindfulness coach.
  • I went through a divorce in my late 20s.
  • For work, I’m an entrepreneur/digital creator. I am a UX/UI designer for websites and software applications. I also design logos, and indie book covers. I love working with fellow entrepreneurs.
  • I have lived with life-threatening food allergies my entire life; tree nuts, peanuts and a few other “bonus” foods.
  • I have been practicing mindfulness for over a decade and my husband and I have started a project called Moving Toward Mindful to share our experiences with others. We also have an indie press.

Now let’s skip to our 10th date:

  • I had a natural, home birth.
  • I am embracing my evolving curls even in their wiry-gray glory (most days).
  • I try to incorporate natural and eco-conscious alternatives in my life wherever possible.
