Born and raised in a small northern town, I grew up in a blue collar home. My father worked for a steel plant and mother for a phone company. With almost 60 years of
marriage, their relationship has instilled in me the value of others.
Before I became a Mom, I was focused on my career in Marketing/Public Relations. I worked primarily with non-profit organizations and found great satisfaction knowing that the work I was doing was benefiting others.
My family is everything to me. Years ago, I left Corporate America so I could stay home and raise my daughters. I went to work for a skin care company, a party plan company; and I had a very successful 16 years with them.
I am a clinical nutritionist and owner of a weight loss and treatment center in Maryland. Needless to say, I love helping people achieve their nutritional goals, which I have been able to do through sharing exceptional products.
My story is not much different than most women. I was a wife, mother and worked full time. I was in a direct sales business that required me to stock inventory and sell products, I worked hard but my effort and income did not match.
I grew up a blue collar kid in Baltimore, Maryland, with two great parents and two older sisters. I graduated college in three years and earned a masters degree two years later. I’ve had a varied career.
Imagine becoming a widow at the age of 42 with two teenagers to support. Many people asked if I would return to teaching fourth grade. Fortunately, the financial aspect was not an issue when I built a six-figure income.
I always believed that in life, you go to school, you get a job, you work hard, you retire and you live happily every after. My belief system was shattered when I was downsized from my corporate job that I had for over 18 years.
Having a career as a waitress for over 19 years took it’s toll on me. My last 10 years of waitressing, I had to work 6 days a week, many were double shifts, just to stay afloat. It was our only source of income after my husband was disabled in a car accident.
My husband and I have two beautiful daughters and before being introduced to this team and company, we spent a lot of time on the road for our jobs. Once our daughters were born we realized that we were missing out on quality time together.
I was the first in my family to enlist in the military (Air Force). I spent 8 years traveling through Italy, Japan and several US states. While in Japan I met
the love of my life; Rick. We married in 1992 and after some infertility, had our first daughter in 2001.
For much of my professional life I was a clinical nurse and have always been passionate about helping people with their health issues. For about 19 years I worked with a cosmetics company alongside my nursing career.
Being a cancer survivor, I am passionate about this business because of the health, wellness and wealth it brings to women’s lives. After standing on my feet for thirty years and having built a successful salon and wig business
As a child I knew I wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives, I just didn’t realize that it was going to take years working in Corporate America to find out that I would never be able to change anyone’s life, including my own.
