The measure of true success - living life your way.
I have the best life! Each morning I awaken and know that the day will be a success - because I live life my way.
I have a passion for the outdoors and the beauty that surrounds me. Fall is my favorite time of year, with the crispness in the air, the colorful foliage exploding on the mountain, and the excitement of the holiday season fast approaching, One of the best things about living in Utah is that we truly experience all four seasons - although I could do without winter!
But, no matter the season there is no better way to spend time enjoying the outdoors than riding an ATV! Yes, a passion of mine is four-wheeling! What fun it is to explore the outdoors riding my bike. Although, I must admit that the steepness of the terrain and riding on the edge of a mountain can certainly take my breath away - literally!
I've been riding for a few years now, although I'm still a novice (I just don't like the rough stuff). I have ridden on the sand dunes and many of the fabulous trails Utah has to offer, seen abundant wildlife - including deer, elk, and a couple of Moose less than 20 feet away, and had some thrilling experiences. One of the things I enjoy the most is just being outdoors breathing the fresh clean air and seeing the beauty of the world from an entirely different perspective.
My bike - a Suzuki Vinson 500, special edition black! And yes, that's me riding my bike.
The best way to predict the future...is to create it!
My professional life...
Here's what I'm up to these days: Alpine Testing Solutions I joined Alpine as their Marketing Project Manager in 2012. It's nice to be back in the assessment industry where I know so many people and have such great friends! Alpine is a virtual company so I get to work for home. A group of great people at the top of the industry!
The wise don't expect to find life worth living; they make it that way!
My personal life...
I don't claim to be wise...but I love my life and try to make it worth living every day. It's been quite a change moving back to Utah (after almost 20 years in Los Angeles), but one of the advantages has been the opportunity, or more accurately time, to discover new passions and re-ignite some of the old ones.
Some of my current passions: Cooking- I love to cook and try new recipes. Recently, I've adopted the strategy of taking 3 or 4 recipes for the same thing - and using them as a guide to create my own version. It's been very successful, I think my banana bread is yummy and my corn chowder is the best you'll ever taste! I'm considering writing a couple of cookbooks...we'll see if I can fit that into my schedule!
Writing- One day I hope to be a published author. I have two books in process - I just need to get them finished. I'm also in the process of testing recipes for a few cookbooks.
Creating- I have a very confused brain. Sometimes it's very analytical and other times it's very creative. When it's creative, I enjoy painting (very abstract), designing jewelry, and creating other pieces of art.
