Welcome to my personal page. I’m glad you stopped by. Let me introduce myself. I’m an energetic, homeschooling mom of three girls in the Tri-Valley area of the East Bay, California. I am working to become a more solidly credentialed USA Gymnastics Coach, a new passion of mine which allows me to still be at home with my family. I do regular volunteer work in my church, through Girl Scouts, and for non-profits.

At this time I’m slowing working on side projects such as my children’s story book Thalia and the Train. You can find some free stories through the link to Love and Blunder in the menu which show a good sampling of my writing and art. I also have some craft and homeschooling resources for free download. Check back for new ones all the time!

If I’m not working, teaching, or volunteering you can be sure to find me out in nature. I crave open spaces and high mountains. If you want to know what to get me for my birthday, a 12 mile hike is probably a good choice. Or maybe a tear-drop camper.
