Hi, thanks for taking the time to read more about me. There are several sides to me: the professional business owner, the mother and wife and grandmother and the soul, the writer and connector. I have been blessed with the gift of empathy and discernment along with being able to teach and motivate you to become the best that you are designed to be.
” My life experience is what has taught me the most. No book could cover the lessons I have learned, no classroom could ever have educated me or helped me to prepare for the trials and blessings I have received. Yet I love to read, to learn and to grow. But learning is not enough for me, once I learn and apply what I learn I am compelled and driven to share with others. Since I was a little girl I wanted to make a difference in the world.
The very first paying job I ever had was when I was only 12 years old. I loved to teach. So the school hired me in the summer to teach young underprivileged children how to read.
I wrote beautiful poetry as a child. My mother encouraged me to write however she was not present to see me through to my grand goals. My teenage years were very traumatic. In those few years I experienced the rough side of life. A life that books are written about and documentaries created. Maybe one day I will write that book.
My second job ever was working at the San Francisco water department as a filing clerk. I learned quickly I would not make it far in the world with that kind of a job. I really hated being told what to do. I am very rebellious. Then the job to end all jobs working for others came when I was hired by McDonalds in Waikiki Hawaii. I did not even wait for my first paycheck period to end before quitting. I decided that I was going to own my own business and be an entrepreneur.
Eventually I became a model and actress, then a clothing designer and a disco contestant.
When I was only 18 my mother died. Soon I was married and by the time I was 19 I had given birth to my oldest son. We went on to have 5 children. We became victims of domestic violence until I got divorced. I then met and married my awesome husband and we had our little son- Tristan who is now 12 years old. I homeschooled all my children for most of their school years and continue to homeschool our youngest son. We also already have grandchildren so our son is a very young uncle. Our home is full of the laughter of little children.
I passed the California real estate agent license exam back in 1983. I've been licensed in California, Washington and Florida. Having a real estate business was a good fit since I was raising a family and I had more freedom to choose when I would work and so on.
