Hi there and thanks for allowing me to share a little about me. I am a Realtor, an Entrepreneur, and a writer. Although writer is listed last, it should be first. Sharing my heart through written words has become my consuming passion for the last 5 years.

Like most people, I fantasized about being a world-renowned writer, but when those feelings surfaced, reality would set in and ask, “What will you write about – what do you have to say?”

I started writing when my only daughter received dramatic health diagnoses. Eight women with the love of God’s Angels made and kept a profound promise. They promised my daughter they would be by her side until she was completely well again. Their collaborative care and acts of love played a major role in her recovery.

Later, a simple thank-you to my daughter’s Angels planted a seed inside to share my heart. I did not ponder on what to write about, or even what to say, I just started to write. Five years and counting that tiny seed continues to grow, ripen and spread.

There is a design, a two-fold objective for my writing. I write about a love within that strengthens and makes me a better me. I write to excite, to entertain, to enlighten and to empower women. I write from my heart hoping it will touch another heart and make a profound difference in someone’s life.

The Audacity of WHY!





Anything starting with the word WHY takes reflection.


Have you ever answered WHY with a simple Yes or No?


WHY questions often lead to thought-provoking, maybe life-changing responses - WHY - because the power lies in the answer.


WHY engages and connects.


WHY dwells deeps and provokes.


WHY is purposeful and demands insight.


WHY is a great catalyst and activator opening doors.


WHY pulls, pushes and keep things moving stretching us.


WHY have the power to create that pause, often time needed for growth.


Now, WHY is usually a child's favorite word - WHY?


What better way to feed your heart than a good, healthy dose of WHY. As simple as this three letter word is - it has the wherewithal to grow hearts phenomenally...

Dear Young Leader:

Dear Leader:

Yes, you, no matter your title, position, rank, job description or age.

Age!  Yes, age.   Now - what would our world would look like if young hearts view themselves as Leaders?

Let us explore this phenomenon…

Would it put a halt to bullying? Maybe - a leader’s approach is set to enhance someone’s spirit, not dampen it. In an act of bullying, other leaders would not engage in this type behavior. Young leaders would step up to the plate suggesting a better way of handling the situation, turning that bully into a true leader.

Would young hearts continue to feed from and act out from a lack of self-esteem? Would they continue to feel isolated and alone, feeling they do not fit in?

With the mindset of a leader, they charge ahead creating their own path not worrying about being just like everyone else. They do not give in to the feelings of isolation by not being part “of the pack”. Indifference from others hurt, but do not crush as they are confident in who they are and move forward marching to their own tune.

Young hearts viewing themselves as leaders have pride in their own uniqueness. They believe in their talents and strengths to better most any situation. They do not fear asking for help realizing it is not a sign of weakness, but a way to grow.

Young leaders realize the price of power is helping others. They have more empathy, awareness and concern for others. They realize life is circular; what they give out returns, so they take pride in sharing themselves.

A leadership mindset starts within, manifests, grows and spreads. Young hearts viewing themselves as leaders creates a society of caring and helping youth fostering a culture of leaders making a difference today and tomorrow.
