I love art in every form, especially fashion. But when I looked for my style on the internet I wasn’t finding it easily. Realizing the media is made up of many more young women than women my age, made me want to try to balance the representation, even if just a little bit. It is my hope that I can make an impact on how women are seen in society as they age. It all starts here, one blog and at time.
I live in the western part of the country. In the summer and fall you will find me in the Northwest Mountains of Idaho, in the spring I live in the valley near Boise Idaho and I spend winters in the Southwest near Phoenix. When I started this blog in 2013 I lived in the mountains most of the year with frequent jaunts to the valley and desert. Eventually I wanted to spend more time in these other areas and now we enjoy a little time every year in each place.
I have a bachelors degree in Communications, a masters degree in Education and a doctoral degree in Education. Most of my career was spent working in Medical Education where I started out as a director of clinical education and worked my way up to associate dean. In 2006 I went to work for an Educational Consulting Firm as Vice President of Learning Innovations. I continue to work with this firm while I dabble in this hobby blog.
This blog is my happy place. I'm not trying to cure cancer or make social change, outside of hopefully promoting a healthy attitude toward women as they age. Its just a space I've created to share fun things that make me and hopefully you, smile, if only for a minute. So, thanks for stopping by my happy place. I hope you keep coming back.
