Hey friend! I'm thrilled you found me here on HubPages. I've been writing for quite awhile now. I write about all sorts of things. Look around. You may discover a little bit about business, cooking, or crafting [I have a ton of hobbies].

IWondering what I do to fill my days? Well, I'm a program director at a museum. I create programs and exhibits - very fun! I also run a small business consulting firm. I help people build their brands, grow their businesses-stuff like that. Who am I really? I'm a gal with an insatiable apetite to learn and explore. I love to try nearly anything and yes, that'll sometimes lead to a mess, but I certainly would rather try and fail miserably, than not to have tried at all.

You can also find me here:

LinkedIn - where you can learn more about my professional endeavors

Pinterest - I share business tips from my consulting work and so much more

Instagram - filled with images from my home State-New Hampshire-and my more whimsical side

Google+ - is where I share even more professioal help.

If there is any way I can be of help, or if you just want to share your story, I'd love to hear from you

If you'd like to use or copy any portion of my work published on HubPages, please contact me personally by e-mail at the contact link provided in the right-hand column of each written piece to obtain permission. Thank you.
