Who Am I?


  1. First and foremost, I am a child of God.  I am a Christian.  Jesus is the sole reason that I am sitting here, writing to you.  He has brought me through more in the last thirty-some years than I could ever have survived on my own.  For now, suffice it to say, I owe Him so much more than *just* my soul.
  2. I am a thirty-five year-old self-proclaimed nerd.  I'm the girl that grew up on science fiction, who loved Quantum Leap, Star Trek, and Back to the Future (yes, all three!).  Independence Day was my favorite movie; that is, until I saw The Matrix.  That favorite was replaced the second Inception crossed my radar.  In addition to "proper" sci-fi, I have developed a little fascination with the supernatural.  I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, LOST, and Charmed.  My current favorite television show is Supernatural with Doctor Who close behind.  To further cement my claim to "nerd-dom," I was an only child with a knack for achievement.  And now?  I'm still an only child, and I still aim for the stars.  If I don't, I get bored.
  3. I am a nurse.  I started out in the medical intensive care unit of a large Pittsburgh hospital.  I worked there for almost three years and loved almost every minute of it.  I love challenges, and there seemed to be a new one every day.  I learned the art - and yes, it deserves that distinction - of critical thinking.  It was on that unit that I discovered, quite by accident, my passion for teaching.  I left that hospital to pursue that dream and went to work as the education coordinator for a small hospital a mere three miles from my house.  Alas, I am now embracing my inner nerd and am currently employed as the only nurse in our IS/IT department.  I am still a nurse at heart, but I also have the joy of impacting the workings of an entire hospital - at least to some extent.
  4.  I am an Emerald-Ranked Team Beachbody Coach.  I love to help people, and really, that is the core of coaching.  As a coach, I help others achieve success in their own health and fitness.  I provide encouragement and motivation and even a little tough love when needed.  I mentor others in setting and achieving goals in all areas of life.  I love being a coach and am so grateful for the opportunities it provides. You can find out more by going to the Team Beachbody Coaching tab at the top of this blog.
  5. I am the wife to an amazing man.   And I have been for fourteen years.  It is my absolute privilege and honor to be married to this man.  He is driven, kind, and generous to a fault.  He's protective and stubborn.  Best of all?  He's just strong-willed enough to stand up to me - a rare and refreshing (mostly.....) quality.  Isn't he handsome?

There is more to me, of course, but I will leave you with this snapshot.  Please feel free to get in touch through Facebook or InstagramI want to know you, too!
