I am a 3rd generation performing marionette artist. I am learning to live life to it's fullest, no matter what comes my way. My childhood sweetheart & I are still loving each other & the world, since High school! I am Blessed!!!!! I have found ZUMBA & have joined the PARTY! A bumper sticker said, "Zumba changed my wife!" YES! It has! Also, Flash Mob..... what a blast! My body now REQUIRES movement! I am a better performer because of Spark People! I thank God, the Angels, AND Spark People, daily for my amazing life!

My life is taking a new lovely turn! I am performing my marionettes for "Angel Workshops"! I love it, so rewarding & healing. A perfect place for me to grow & focus on goals. They happen about 1 time a month. Also, I maybe performing for the Wetlands, in their Nature Center (my favorite hiking spot) using my marionettes to teach about nature! It IS magical! I am so Blessed & grateful for these experiences. I am enjoying watching my life unfold in this new way!

My 'regular' job is helping my DH with his lovely small business. I am learning SO many new things & thrive because of it! I love him so much!
