Random fact: I absolutely despise writing about myself. 

I'd rather meet you for coffee and talk.  Go to yoga and follow it up with a hike.  Introduce you to my husband and kids, show you our little homestead, walk through the garden, and introduce you to our chickens.  I'd love to invite you over for dinner.  Sit in the sun with a cold beer and laugh.  Discuss the universe and gaze at the stars. Beat you at pool...

But since that's not likely possible, I suppose I'll have to tell you a bit about me.

I've spent my life between Ventura County, CA and Salt Lake City, UT.  When I was a kid I wanted to be a neurosurgeon or a news anchor woman.  I ended up a publisher, mother, and artist.  Not too bad.  Plus I don't want the responsibility of doing surgery on people's brains, no thanks.

I live in Zion National Park with my husband and two of my three kids.
I teach art at my kids' elementary school. I am the Publisher & Founder of Natural Mother Magazine. I enjoy running, hiking, camping, yoga, gardening, star gazing, being in the moment, good people, and even better food.

I am happy.  My cup is full.  Life is so damn good.  I am grateful. Thank you so much for being here.
