I was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom while raising my family, running our family business, and even homeschooling my children for ten of those years. I was very active in the local home school co-op and in my children’s extra-curricular activities.
My children had the grace and wisdom to grow up into amazing young adults, move out and begin taking responsibility for their own lives. I struggled with Empty Nest transition, but now my children have succeeded and blessed me with five wonderful grandsons and another grandchild on the way!
In preparing for an empty nest, I started a Virtual Assistant (VA) business, then took those five years of skills to where I am now, running a 6 figure online business utilizing my own VA and personal assistant.
While I was a VA, I helped my clients systemize and organize their time, provided administrative support, and coached American Airline employees on Outlook & time management skills for a client. I also utilized my accounting background and provided bookkeeping support as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
I am a successful entrepreneur, mother of three and a city girl who migrated to rural America where I married my country sweetheart over 30 years ago. We live on a small farm with our English Cream Golden Retrievers (Wisteria Goldens), our cat, horses, and cattle. Because I’ve lived in both city and country communities, I’ve been exposed to a broad range of challenges which helped me to unfold the skills to provide a unique perspective for the various stages of life.
I have a passion for helping women create holistic wellness in their lives and/or business utilizing essential oils. I have helped women align their values, goals and sense of self to create a vision and plan of action. This allows them more peace, harmony, time, and focus. Business, schedules, and life can all come together to create the life they deserve and have dreamed of.
I believe that part of healing is sharing your story and aligning with who you truly are. This is so important, that I wrote about my journey in “Superwoman Myths: Break the Rules of Silence and Speak Up Your Truth,” a compilation of women sharing their life to help others heal and becoming authentic. Our book became an International Best Selling book resonating with so many women.
So, who am I really?
I love coffee, wine, listening to the sound of the ocean, my children and grandchildren, spending time with family & friends, and hanging out with my husband (who I not only love, but still like after being together over 30 years.) I believe in being who I am, and true to myself at all times. I understand that making decisions from this place can be difficult for others to understand at times, but know I must follow my heart to fulfill the path that God has chosen for me. I have a passion for essential oils and helping other woman find what lights them up and brings excitement to their life! I'm a life long learner of anything to do with alternative health and healing on all levels — physical, emotional, and spiritual. I'm not perfect and will continue to evolve and grow, which is a life long journey. I believe maintaining and supporting good health is easier than dealing with illness. Self-care has been the hardest lesson for me to learn and while I have made progress in this area, I still strive to improve each day.
