“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” Leonardo da Vinci
So, I’m a dreamer. I always have been. I’ve dreamed of owning a successful business that embraces heterogeneity on nearly every level. I’ve dreamed of running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days. I’ve dreamed of giving my three girls a foundation on which they can pursue and live their own big dreams. My list of dreams is long, and always evolving.
I believe in dreaming big, but I’ve also found that I can, and should, dream even bigger. Too many times I’ve reached a dream only to realize the hardest part was visualizing what that destination should be, not the work to get there. I’ve also learned to truly embrace the journey, as it sure makes the achievement of a dream all the more satisfying.

I’ve had a lifelong passion for sharing my experiences and emotions as a story of trials, tribulations and achievements. A few of my obsessions—entrepreneurship, ultrarunning and the importance of visualization in achieving dreams—have converged with my long-awaited passion of writing to inspire and motivate others to get everything they want out of life. Whether you read one of my blogs or become a devoted follower, my hope is that my crazy journey can ignite the fire burning within each of us to achieve our dreams.
