First of all, thank you for visiting my website! It is my sincere hope that you find yourself inspired about the potential that is revealed when you believe that what you want is possible.
I live in northern Illinois with my husband and three children. They are my greatest blessings and make the world a brighter place. I have been an elementary school teacher for 1st-3rd grade students for eight years, during which time I beheld the influence of books on children's lives.
In addition to reading, watching, and telling stories, my best memories have been those moments when I pushed myself farther than my comfort zone. I believe that it is experiences, not possessions, that enhance life to the fullest. Here are some of my favorite experiences so far: 1. Trying out for the dance team as an awkward teenage girl (I made the team, against all odds!) 2. Singing karaoke very poorly in front of a crowd 3. Traveling on an exchange trip to France, even though my working knowledge of the French language was minimal at best 4. Setting off on road trip adventures with friends when we didn't have any clue what we were getting ourselves in to 5. Moving to Arizona all by myself after college 6. Snorkeling in Key West 7. Writing a book
One of the most important lessons I have learned in this journey is that you won't regret trying something new, even if it seems scary or you think you can't.
So, onward to new adventures, whether they be through imagined stories or lived in reality. Do what you are meant to do 😊
