Welcome to My Blog!
You may be wondering, “Who are you?!” So let me tell you a little about myself and my journey to use words to touch people’s lives. By the way, you can learn more about me on the homepage of this site as well as on my curriculum vitae, which is also available on this site.
If you had asked me 20 years ago if I dreamed of becoming a writer, my answer would have been a resounding “NO!” But God truly works in mysterious ways! About 12 years ago, I started to recognize my natural gift/talent with words—both written and spoken. I’m almost always comfortable when speaking in public. And I’m very meticulous about my writing. As I started to receive positive feedback from professional endeavors, I realized that I was good!
Not to sound arrogant, but I have struggled with finding my personal strengths for most of my life, so identifying writing as one of my strengths was huge for me! As I recognized my natural abilities with words, I started asking God how He wanted me to share those gifts. Through some winding roads, I was finally able to find my path! Looking back, each winding road added important components to my craft.
- My background in engineering added precision and problem-solving abilities.
- My time in college student affairs helped me recognize the importance of communicating clearly with others.
- My career as an attorney provided essential research skills, so I can properly support my words with “evidence” or references.
- My experience in counseling added compassion and empathy to my writing, helping me to view my writing from the perspective of the reader.
Because I have such a varied background, I plan to share my thoughts and insights on a variety of topics, from parenting to faith to corporate diversity. Thanks for joining me on this roller coaster ride!
I hope you enjoy the posts! I hope to add content regularly, so come back often!
