Who I've been, who I am, who I hope to be.
I was born and raised in the Midwest - a suburb of Chicago to be exact. After graduating from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Business I took a job in Silicon Valley, writing marketing materials and technical documentation as the region blossomed around me. The lack of "interesting" weather and a few strategically placed earthquakes pulled me back to my roots in Illinois.
So I traveled home, "settled down" (ie. got married, had kids), but never stopped writing. Who could after all, since motherhood alone is the motherload of material (ouch). Writing has always held a prominent role in the positions I've held. As I felt called to work for NPOs which have crossed my path, I found satisfaction in helping them tell their story to the community.
I feel honored to have been published in 70+ publications covering diverse industries and audiences. I write about balun transformers (used in high-tech RF gadgets)... I write about making my own baby food (never trusted the colorful goo in jars)... I write about how God is reaching out to us every day (if we'd only take the time to listen!). A variety to be sure, reflecting the journey I can only see clearly in the rear-view mirror. I hope to keep doing what I've been doing, until it's time to do something quite different. What a ride!
