About Me

I used to be a big deal on FM radio in Manila when I hosted, produced, and directed weekday morning show, “Zach and Joey in the Morning,” on the now defunct 107.5 NU107.

I’m a freelance writer for hire, voiceover artist, and grandma.

Where I'm From

I spent my childhood in the Pacific Northwest, my teens, 20s, and 30s in the Philippines, and my 40s in the South, y’all. 

I left everything I knew for close to thirty years and returned to a country I knew as a child so I could give my daughter a better life. 

I was a single mom for twenty-three years. My daughter married three years ago, and I’ve been having a blast as Jack's Lola. (That's Filipino for Grandma!)

Starting over again at thirty-eight years old with nothing at the bottom has since paid off.

What I've Done

I've done a crap ton of stuff in my life because you know, single mom working hard to raise a daughter by herself kinda story.

What I Blog About

This blog is where I talk about how I’m chasing my passion for writing, designing my best year ever, and rediscovering my faith. I hope you’re inspired by my failures and successes.

And yeah, Mickey and Minnie still make me feel like I’m eight.
