about me

I like to push myself into new territory, and right now the Women’s Lounge 100 website is definitely new territory. Building it is a slow process because I’m not an expert, but it’s coming along. I’m spending a lot of time on it, that is…

I’m married to a super cool guy, and have two kids and two step-kids, plus two entertaining and destructive large dogs in addition to my horse. I’ve lived all over the country, lived and studied in Europe, and tend to be happy wherever I land. That’s about it. And if I don’t understand something, I won’t pretend I do.

This picture was taken after climbing thousands of feet up Mt. Rainier. I started way in the back of the valley and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but it was also glorious. It’s essentially like spending eight hours on a slippery Stairmaster wearing a 50-pound pack. For the first time in my life I told myself I wasn’t the person I thought I was, which is a pretty terrifying thought. My days since have been spent trying to become that person.

As counter-intuitive as it might seem, doing more metaphorically hard stuff like this, whether you succeed or not, will reveal a deeper meaning beyond the slog up the hill–plus I’d wager that it’ll actually turn you into a happier person. And if you’re a happier person, you’ll find a way to enjoy the slog. Money back guarantee.

Define your own mountain and start climbing it. If nothing else, you’ll have a few good tales to tell down the road.
