Hello, It's Nice to meet you

In America, when we first meet someone, we ask “So what do you do?”

Over the years, I’ve held many titles: Receptionist, Museum Educator, Programs Director, Administrative Assistant, IT Security Technician, Program Assistant, Personal Trainer, Wellness Coach (some of these at the same time).

But none of them really says much about me.

Those titles don’t tell you…

  • what keeps me up at night (financial worries)
  • what makes me squeal (hearing my son will be reading Of Mice and Men in school)
  • what makes me smile (hiking in the woods with my dogs)
  • what drives me (cultivating learning)

Here’s what I can tell you.
