About me

Location Central Coast of California, United States
Introduction I am a former marketing VP in the homebuilding industry. Five years ago I left my career to be a stay-at-home mom. Little did I know that one of our children would be diagnosed with a rare disease and finding treatment would become my full-time job! My sister Patty, calls me a "Mother Warrior" and I guess that is what I have become. No one fights harder for their children than a mother. We are their advocates. We are their voice...and if we don't fight for them, who will? I'm the married mom of three kids. My kids are the lights of my life. They are smart, funny, kind, compassionate, caring...and sometimes they drive me crazy. I am the youngest of 4 girls and the older I get, the more admiration I have for my parents. I don't know how they had the patience to raise all 4 of us to adulthood! I now understand why my mother would disappear into the bathroom with the newspaper, cigarettes and a cup of coffee... I want my kids to have great childhoods...to know they are secure and loved...and to grow up to be great people! Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband who shares in the responsibility of parenting our three sweethearts!
