Introduction I'm a 30 something working to nourish her creative and intellectual self. I'm both a kid at heart and an old soul. I'm a passionate communicator, an artist who works from her heart-not a text book. My full time job is in educational marketing, but I'm known to have some fun at recess during the school year. Daughter, sister, aunt, friend and mentor are the most important titles I've ever had. I'm learning to try new things in work and yes, even in my real life.
