"Experience. Labor. These are the twin sides of the coin which when spun is neither experience nor labor, but the moment of revelation. The coin, by optical illusion, becomes a round, bright, whirling globe of life."
—Ray Bradbury

My professional life

My current path is part homesteading, part craftperson, part part-time web research, all working from home. Home is where my heart is now.

Building and improving communities too - volunteering with Keep Greenville County Beautiful, Berea Station Events, the Enchanted Chalice Renaissance Faire and St. Anthony of Padua school in Greenville, SC.

Home and community have become so important to me that I've started a new journey - helping others find their homes as a real estate agent. Stay tuned for details!

In the past, I worked on warehouse management (WMS) implementations. My focus was working with industrial engineers on receiving components and delivering to point-of-use within manufacturing plants. My role was managing requirements, system testing, and user acceptance testing. These projects are highly satisfying, as they drive productivity, economic growth, and prosperity.

My skills include creating lively presentations, videos, and graphics. I have good website and database skills, and continue to learn more every day.

Research and writing are two things I enjoy. I have published articles in trade magazines and travel websites.
Some samples:
Top Five Challenges to Cross-Border Trade with Mexico
published in Material Handling and Logistics

The wine country of Walla Walla, Washington
published in Road Trip America

When I'm not working

I enjoy cooking. Breads and Italian foods are two of my favorites, which combines to weekly homemade pizza.

Every day is an adventure, something as simple as walking the dog leads me to find new and interesting things in and around my neighborhood on the west side of #YeahThatGreenville
