What I once rejected as a variety of unplanned roles, curious experiences and hardships have become a priceless treasure to me that I now hold close to my heart. Be it married, divorced, a single parent raising three children for twelve plus years and grand parenting of which was all laced together with the experiences of farming, tending animals, water sports, movie producing, managing union and non-union employees, being an entrepreneur and business owner. I appreciated it even more, when I had the hardships of; a near death experience of a heart attack, auto accidents, pays cuts and company downsizings. A lot of bad things are said about the city I live in, Flint Michigan. I don't see my city that way. I see a city full of talent, full of new creative ideas. I see people coming all over the world to learn and be blessed by her. I love life, people and solving problems.
