About Me

I combine twenty years of my midwest upbringing with a decade (or two) of city life to share stories and life lessons from the heart. My husband Marc and I have three kids and live in Geneva, a suburb of Chicago.

What you need to know!

I have been in the media marketplace for over 18 years in the Chicagoland area. 


Meanwhile, the “content” that has intrigued me the most has been the stuff of everyday life. The magic and messiness of marriage and meals… parenting and potty training... friends and faith. 

I write and speak about the issues that I observe many women experiencing, weaving Biblical wisdom through it all. My real-life stories are shared in a relatable, authentic manner to let you know you’re not alone, to equip you, and to encourage you to live your best home and family life. 

Engage with me through reading, listening to live teaching and guest interviews on social, subscribing to my newsletter, or booking me to speak or coach.
