About Me

I am a wife and a mother.  The birth of my first child led to a complete reevaluation of my life and the choices I was making.  Up to that point, I was a career woman.  I had a well paid government position doing what I loved and traveling all over the world.  And at that point I thought that that is what I would be doing for the rest of my life.  And then things changed.

My first daughter came into my life.  All of a sudden I was paying closer attention to what I used to clean my home, what I was feeding my family, and most dramatic of all, I began to toy with the idea of changing my career.  I left my cushy government job and became a Realtor.  It was a perfect job for me and gave me the flexibility I needed at the time to be home with my daughter but also help bring in some income.

When my second child came along, I decided to leave real estate altogether.  One child is one thing, but two was a whole different story.  I found it difficult to be there for both of my kids and still be there for my clients.  Now, I spend my evenings writing.

I am an academic and a researcher at heart.  I graduated from Colby College with bachelor's degree in economics and in international studies.  I later got my master's in national security and strategic studies.  I am not spending a lot of time researching national security issues these days, but that side of me has led me to research everything else.  Especially as it pertains to the health and nutrition of my family.

My God and my family are my everything.  This blog has given me a voice to share with you everything I have learned to keep that family spiritually and physically safe and healthy.
