I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. — Mary Oliver
I love this quote that represents how I try to approach life—with compassion, playfulness, and curiosity.
As the family tech geek, I’ve always been an early-adopter, setting up new gadgets and software for friends and family members. I soon became the teacher at any new job. After I left, coworkers would call me up for help. My cell phone became their personal hotline—and I enjoyed it!
I started blogging in 2006 at a time that wellness and spirituality had become big passions for me. An injury gave me a crash course in the importance of healthy food, regular exercise and being your own advocate in the healthcare system.
I soon discovered WordPress falling in love with how easy it was to create websites and then with the generous WordPress community. I eventually became an organizer of the Greenville SC WordPress Meetup and started providing WordPress training and support.
I love being outdoors – especially surrounded by trees. I’m happiest when I make walking and biking a regular part of my days. I love the Slow Bicycle Movement (and slow everything else), but I also enjoy watching road and cyclocross racing with my favorite commentator.
I was part of a group of volunteers that founded Bike Walk Greenville and served as a Board Member. I found my tribe of creative thinkers: Beer & Napkins: an idea revolution and recently joined their Board.
