Who am I?
Updated: Apr 23
Recently someone asked me to sum up who I am and I was at a complete loss. I play such different roles in the different streams of my life and I couldn't just pick one for the sake of simplicity. They are all equally significant and integral to who I am. I know that this platform is really a professional one but I have a bio on the main site so I figured I could be a bit more of me in this space.
I am a single mom of 4 who homeschools my 10 year old twin girls, guides and encourages my teen daughter as much as she will let me, and remains a source of unconditional love for my young adult now that they have flown the nest. I give constant energy to create a loving and lively home atmosphere. I push my girls to be the best of themselves and in turn push myself to be the best of me.
I give 100% of myself to being a mother, it takes up all of my time and energy and I love every minute of it.
I am an Executive Integrated Producer for photo, video, social and digital commercial campaigns. I produce shoots across multiple platforms from concept to delivery. I push paperwork, manage budgets, build and manage teams of 4 to 40 on location anywhere in the world. I collaborate with incredibly talented people and am exhilarated by their expertise, creativity, and knowledge. I am honored to work alongside them.
I give 100% of myself to being a producer, it takes up all of my time and energy and I love every minute of it.
I am a woman. I love books to the point of obsession. I like to connect with history through art. I like to be intellectually and intimately stimulated through deep conversation. I am self taught, self made, self aware, and crave a consistent discovery of new and greater self mastery. I work to be a better woman everyday and admire intelligent, kind, and effective women of integrity.
I give 100% of myself to being a woman, it takes up all of my time and energy and I love every minute of it.
I am just me, all of these parts of me are happening all at once and sometimes it gets messy. I am disconnected from pop culture and haven’t seen a single episode of anything in several years. I often join conference calls from my closet to shut-out the noise of the house, and silence my phone while homeschooling to shut out the noise of work. I am anti-social with my fellow soccer moms, don’t help out much with my Tuesday homeschool group and fall short of fully supporting my best friend in her personal goals when I can't seem to squeeze another ounce of energy out of the day. But I have so much love. I hope it makes up for some of the lesser parts of me. I give 100% of myself to being me, it takes up all of my time and energy and I love every minute of it.
