And THANK YOU Emily, Roz, Kat and Angela. Wow, I am so honored to have had you all take part in this series. Thank you for baring your souls and inner most thoughts with us! What a gift.
Being a female professional how has your gender impacted your career?
I grew up with very supportive progressive parents and was never told I couldn’t do something because I was a girl, so I never thought that. Women aren’t born thinking they are less then, somebody taught them that.
including wondering if my gender played a role in why I made that decision or how that person reacted to me.
What actions do you take to help the next generation in your field? What are your concerns for the future?
My main concern is how women are still represented and not represented in sports. Do we still have to be sexualized in our sports too? I’m kind of over it.
Anything else you would like to add?
Strangers When We Meet
Angela and I met when we were about 3 years old. We became best friends but when we turned 5 my family moved to the country. My relationship with Angela would come to an end, we both thought.
Oh, but the universe works in amazingly mysterious ways. We ran into each other about 25 years later, instantly remembering each other and falling back into our best friend status. We found that our lives were so parallel. We both had lived in a 3 world country, create jewelry and Angela even had a watercolor that my father painted.
What is so beautiful about Angela is seeing her go from a loving stay at home mother to a knowledgeable leader. Even though her job as a business owner can be difficult or challenging she always sees this as rewarding. She puts compassion and love into everything she does. Thank you Angela for the life long friendship and support. I love you always.

"Knot Ready" Necklace
I was visiting the very talented artist Andrea Williams while staying in Boston. Thanks to good friends and good people who lined this up (wink wink Erica!!). While I snooped and drooled over Andrea's studio she gave me a present. An old spool of leather. I was grateful for the kind present and to my excitement I created "Knot Ready". This necklace is simple, layered and beautiful, just like Andrea. Please check Andrea's breath taking and earth conscious jewelry at Bound Earth.
