About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Western North Carolina, United States
Introduction I'm a book artist, marketing pro, wife, and above all, a seeker and learner. I'm on an (at times uneasy) expedition to challenge the stories I've been telling myself all my life, to probe the richness of choice and possibility, to live companionably with ambiguity, and to be grateful every stumbling step of the way (ha!).
