Who are you?

I am a storyteller, writer, everyday photographer, producer of amazing tiny humans, wife to my best friend, devourer of books, consumer of coffee, lover of Kansas City, cat person, swimmer, good woman in a storm, pragmatic decision maker, lover of academia, life documenter, DIY enthusiast, adventurous cook, beginning gardener, battler of anxiety, teacher and learner, blogger, wearer of simple clothing, doer, maker, and am trying to be a good force in this world.

What do you believe with all of your heart?

People matter.

When did you know that this was your path?

The first time I looked through my books and found something documented that I had completely forgotten. If I wasn’t a memory keeper, that beautiful bit of life would have been lost in the ether of time.

Where is your favorite place on earth?

It sounds corny, but wherever my family is. My most loved physical places are home and my favorite local coffee shop.

Why do you love your life?

I try to make every day count, and they add up to something more amazing than I could have imagined.

How do you do everything you do?

I constantly keep a quest for balance at the forefront of my mind, I make lots of lists, and I work furiously when naptime rolls around!
