Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.

I moved from the lifestyle and city that defined me at 37 years old for love. My identity was wrapped around navigating the people, my career and the vibes of a large city. When I moved to Arizona to marry my husband, I never thought the change would be so dramatic. To adapt to my new surroundings, I wrote for a local blog, Phoenix Getaways, where I chronicled the main events and some unique sites around the state. I was proud of a resume that was filled with experiences with large, well-known organizations, but I never achieved the accolades and awards that I earned once I began working for smaller, lesser-known companies in my adopted city. I also earned a master’s degree at the age of 54, an accomplishment I never considered pursuing while I lived in Chicago.

Life is funny! Just when you think you have it all figured out, you’re thrown a curve ball. What I discovered was it’s the way you manage that curve that really defines you.
