About Me

I grew up milking goats, grooming sheep and feeding ducks, chickens and geese. An avid gardener to this day, my family (with seven children) grew our own food, canned it, and I tagged along with my dad for all his bee farming work. Later, dad and I made our own wine.  As a result, I have lots of experience writing about agriculture, farming and the showing of horses.

A grandma now, I live with a Pug, a once feral Chihuahua-mix and together we love our black kitten, Lilith. That's not to mention the three, year-old, Top Hat Polish chickens that fail to lay eggs out back. Point is, I've written a large number of pet articles too.

With my bachelor's degree in communications/English, I've written for higher education, business and newspapers. I've posted a mixture of the topics that I've written about recently, but the subjects I'm familiar with range from personal interest, to technology, hard news, entertainment, and feature stories. I earned my certification in massage therapy from Clover Park Technical Institue and my Hypnotherapy credentials from Mary Lee LaBay's school and have continued my education through the International Hypnotherapist Association.
