Book a Reading
Writing for children is rewarding, in itself. Nothing is better than reading my stories, in person, to children, so I can see their reactions, and answer their questions. I love how engaged kids are when I’m reading to them. They immerse themselves in the experience, “live” the tales they’re being told. Children’s insights, and attention to detail, never cease to amaze me. They draw connections, have realizations, and make suggestions that illustrate just how observant, and creative, they are.

Stress Management Consultations
Everyone feels stressed, now and then, as they go through life. Sometimes the stressors we encounter motivate us, challenge us, and nudge us toward growth. Other stressors overwhelm us, or become chronic frustrations.
We cannot eliminate stress from our lives completely, nor should we want to. What we can do is look at our stressors to determine the degree to which we have control over them. We can also look at the habitual ways we react to a stressor to determine if our reactions have exacerbated the situation.
Learning to manage stress, which builds resilience, requires understanding our stress responses and their underlying causes.
Stress reduction techniques might involve:
- Adjusting the way we set boundaries
- Heightening our emotional awareness
- Processing difficult emotions
- Becoming more mindful
While completing my certification through the American Institute of Health Care Professionals (AIHCP), I learned ways to support people as they acquire tools and techniques for stress management and reduction. Incorporating these methods into one’s life can foster a sense of inner peace while restoring energy and vitality.

Digital Content Creation
Promoting and marketing my site, and the material on it, has been a wonderful journey. It has been challenging at times, and I’ve learned quite a bit the hard way. At some point, I realized I was enjoying the promotion as much as the writing. To expand my knowledge and ability, I enrolled in a Digital Marketing Specialization Certificate.
I’m particularly fond of creating content for Pinterest. If you are interested in having a designer assist you with content creation on this platform, please reach out. I’ll assist you as you find your audience, further develop your brand identity, and connect to potential clients and customers.
