The All-Important Introduction
Who I Am
If there is one thing that can bring me to my knees, it’s talking about myself. Telling people who YOU are is definitely easier than telling people who I am. But, introductions are important so here’s a piece of me.
I am a small-town, Midwestern girl who grew up with big dreams of moving to the East Coast and becoming a writer. These dreams included a posh apartment downtown, a lake house with panoramic views of water and trees, and a reputation for writing witty, sarcastic, popular books that were miraculously drafted in approximately 2 hours of my week. No spouse. No kids. No worries. And most certainly no plans to return to home. I had it all planned out.
This funny thing happens while you’re busy making plans. It’s called “life”.
You start to reimagine yourself and your life differently; this new way of being that incorporates experiences, perspectives, learning, and people.
I made it to the East Coast.
I came home.
I am a writer and editor.
I am a wife.
I am a mother.
And I am living this amazing life on a small piece of the prairie; a product of my lived experiences.
I may not have realized my childhood dreams, but I now have everything my heart desires.
Now I help clients to find the words to tell who THEY are.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ~Benjamin Franklin
