I am going to start by telling you who/what I am not. I am not a doctor or a nurse; I do not possess a degree in psychology or psychiatry; nor am I a certified nutritionist or health coach.
There, that’s said.
“So what,” you say.
Well, so you won’t say you read something I published and found it didn’t work, or declare that I am a fraud.
Since each one of us is a unique creation, it is rare that we will all fit in the what works for one should work for all mold.
SO WHO AM I?
I am, however, a retired high school English teacher. I received my BA in education from National College of Education. Later, I returned to school (while teaching) for a Masters in curriculum and leadership; and later still, a degree in educational administration.
I enjoy reading and research, and not the kind of research you do when you “Google” a topic and thoroughly believe the first article you believe. For example, when my husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, rather than schedule ourselves with one of the hospital’s dietitians, I researched the nutrition and changes in lifestyle he needed to adopt in order to continue with his career as a truck driver.
I enjoy learning and experiencing new things.
Before I moved to Middle Tennessee, I was a member of a Happiness Club where we learned about gratitude, laughter, and living life to the fullest.
I enjoy listening to people and guiding them to make more positive choices in their lives.
Even at 57 trips around the sun, I am still developing into the person I want to be.
