Bio

I recently authored my first book, “Dancing With Lewy: A Father Daughter Dance Before and After Lewy Body Dementia Came to Live With Us”. This story chronicles my dad’s struggle with Lewy body dementia, and how our father-daughter dynamics played out. I am also a speaker and volunteer Community Educator for the Alzheimer’s Association. My husband and I have two grown sons, and we both volunteer in our communities. I also work part-time as a Contracts and Compliance Manager for Be The Match in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Interests

Writing, reading, connecting with other writers. My husband and I love to travel and visit new places. I’ve done scrapbooking, but now I’ve moved to doing it digitally.

WordPress Origin Story

My first attempt at telling my story was with a blog. I had heard WordPress was the best way to blog, so I gave it a try. I found the blogging platform user-friendly. I easily figured out how to insert pictures, links to YouTube videos, and more. I then decided to do a website. My first couple websites were pretty basic, then when I wanted to make a more professional one, where I could have a store, I enlisted a bit of help from a gentleman on fiverr.com. I now have a great looking website, and have been able to sell a good number of books directly.
