Who am I?
Raised in a small, Iowa town by a farmer/banker and a teacher/artist, I was the (annoying) little sister for two (big) brothers.
I was an overachiever in high school, then nearly clunked out at Iowa State University.
I loaded up a used, old, yellow Corolla and moved to Pensacola, Florida where I found myself a beach-betty and waitress. There, I won a local modeling contest and moved back north to start my modeling career.
Some 30 (<cough>) years, 5 countries, 9087 apartments, 8 cats, 3 goldfish, 2 turtles, 1 massive Anatolian Shepherd, 1 feisty red lab, a PTA Presidency, and a whole lotta life later….
I’m "Mom!!" to a brave, sensitive, taller-than-me-16-year- old.
I cherish my brilliant, gorgeous friends.
I deeply love my fur-babies.
I honor My Lords and Masters.
I duke it out daily in meditation.
I act (in my dreams).
I study (constantly).
Now I am a teacher + artist, empowering kids and adults to express themselves wholeheartedly, while we build community and wellness.
Come get your ya-ya's out!
