Greetings! It's been great to be a part of the Chamber the past 1.5 years and I look forward to meeting even more of you!
I grew up in Luxemburg, WI, the eldest of 4 girls...yes! 4! You can imagine there was always a lot going on and many people to be around! If you know me, it's no surprise I had a long career as a Cheerleader :)! After graduating as an L-C Spartan, I went on to become a UWEC Blugold in Eau Claire, WI. As a Psychology Major, I was the coordinator of a 'Peer Counseling' group, where I would meet my future husband, Randy. Out of a group of 20 women and only 2 men, I still remind him HE CHOSE ME! He must be a good decision maker, as we've been together 22 years! I graduated with a major in Psychology and minor in Spanish, and Randy with Criminal Justice major and Psychology minor.
My career choices have been a little more varied than my husband choice, thank goodness! I've dabbled in careers of Domestic Abuse, Human Resources, Special Education Paraprofessional and Insurance Agency Customer Service. However, my professional love of Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics is truly my passion! I started my business almost 20 years ago! My passion comes from being a positive influence in women's lives by sharing the message of Mary Kay Ash "letting every woman know how great she really is". Be that through the confidence of looking your best, or running a successful business that leads them to financial independence. My passion comes easily when the focus is empowering women - through complimentary makeovers, home parties with friends, and helping women start their own business! This is possible because of the company priorities of Faith first, Family second, Career third. Every woman's dream!
My business as an entrepreneur fits my life well with a focus on family! Randy and I have been married for 18 years, have incredible kids: Katie 14, and Jake 11. We do a lot as a family and still believe in family dinner every night, even though with sports & activities it might be at 4 pm! I consider myself a master scheduler with all the opportunities to live life to its fullest! And...as a family, we are part of the Steeler Nation!
Interests & hobbies: vacation & travel with my family, baking, reading self-improvement books, long walks with hubby, and the dream of scrapbooking!
I'm probably best summed up by the words Gumption, Grit & Glitter, the name of my current book - which is inspiring the future version of myself: Gumption, Grit and Glitter by Anne Newbury, and the best book I ever read was Warrior Magnificent by Jamie Vrinios. My message to you: I believe YOU ARE AMAZING! Have a MAGNIFICENT DAY!!
