Introducing myself and my journal: Explorations

About Me:
Mother, partner, sister, friend, business-owner, teacher, perpetual-learner and seeker.

My Passions:
My greatest passions include my family, the science of human behavior, self growth and exploration, and supporting others in their personal and professional journeys.

My Challenges:
I am challenged by being interested in many things, which can be at the expense of focus and depth or lead to feeling overwhelmed. At times I feel overwhelmed by choices despite being so grateful to have choice. As a naturally open person, my professional life of the last decade was in the end not a good fit for me, and I found myself physically unhealthy from stress as well as shut down to others, and full of protective instincts, defensive. So I seek balance, in my choices of how I devote my time, effort and spirit.

My Vision for the Future:
My vision for my personal future includes the balance I reference above. It is full of strong and meaningful relationships and mentally challenging and engaging work that makes a difference.

My Areas of Expertise:
I have a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuropsychology and a great deal of experience in research and teaching. I have also owned and managed hospitality businesses, giving my expertise in business and management. However, I feel (hope) my greatest strengths are in my parenting and partnership. It is connection with others that has always brought me the greatest joy.
