Writing "my mission" in my own words has proven to be more difficult than I expected. Leaving this page blank or not including it at all wasn't an option, as I didn't want to forget about it. While I work to find my own words - the ones below help guide me towards the direction I'm taking.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
— Maya Angelou


    My mission is to give, for giving is what I do best and I can learn to do better.

    I will seek to learn, for learning is the basis for growth, and growing is the key to living. I will seek first to understand, for understanding is the key to finding value, and value is the basis for respect, decisions, and action. This should be my first act with my husband, my family, and my business.

    I want to help influence the future development of people and organizations. I want to teach children and others to love and laugh, to learn and grow beyond their current bounds.

    I will build personal, business, and civic relationships by giving, in frequent little ways.
