What is your profession? Entrepreneur: Previous owner Invitation Station – I’ON Square Mt. P 2004-2007 | WE*DO Fine Stationery and Invitations | Social MediaPeeps | The Wedding Isle | Coming soon, Lucky Lady Letterpress

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? Being a MOM and WIFE!  Newlywed – something really are better the second time! Watching my 11 year old son (Michael’s) baseball games. Last year’s Mt. P U9 Cal Ripken All Starts State Champs – U10 Runner up this year!  We’re off to Regional’s in NC next week. Hanging out with my hubby with a nice glass of homemade pinot grigio wine or one of his awesome home brew beers. Traveling whenever possible!!  Husband works for USAir (no he’s not a pilot – never met one that wasn’t a jerk – no offense), so anytime we can get away we’re outta here!! Self acclaimed “movie-hol-ic .”  I love all the kids movies.  Just saw Horrible Bosses – thought it was hysterical. Enjoy reading (paper books that is-not sure about all this Kindle stuff – seems weird to me.) Reading/studying Numerology (Pythag’s Theory) right now – totally fascinated! Currently listening to the 4 Hour Work Week on CD in my car.  This is now my mantra! Hummm…let’s see I was recently a stand-in beer tasting judge at Westbrook Brewery (now that was fun).  MUSIC – going to Keith Urban concerts!  I am a huge groupie – used to go all his concerts! :-0 PAPER is my PASSION.  Just LOVE paper stuff…I’m getting ready to delve into Letterpress with new little letterpress I just got! I like driving.  I drive a stick shift.  Used to have a little white MGB and was in the British Women’s Car Club…BTW – I am English by birth.  Born 1969 Leeds, England.  Immigrated to US 1975 with Father.  1980 Returned to UK to go to school-Graduated 1985.  Returned to US in 1985, then in 1986 – Enrolled at CofC and have been here ever since!!!  Does that make me a NATiVE??? How could I forget – I love shopping  and a good bargain! Who doesn’t!
How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? I was a member when I had Invitation Station, but I was chained to the store so could never really participate.  I just recently joined the C4W as an individual.

What inspired you to become a member? You guys!  Impressive organization.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? So far great networking!  Hoping to be more involved.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? Not really sure how to answer this, other than I love being a woman and wouldn’t have it any other way. Of course I believe that we are the dominant sex and one day take over the universe!!

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Even in tough times with little or no money (God knows I’ve been there), there is still hope and you can do whatever you set your mind to. There are so many ways you can cut back, and scale back to save and still do what you want to do-that is, what your heart says you should be doing. There’s never a perfect time to make those life changes like starting your own business, you just have to DO IT!  But be flexible and adapt! But NEVER GIVE UP!  Don’t take NO for an answer.  Think outside the box!  Refuse to be a YES woman.  Sometimes the best action is no action. People do what they want to do, so what are you waiting for!
