I founded Living the Balanced Life due to the personal and professional struggles I dealt with over the years.
You can read more about my personal life and struggles below.
To learn more about my previous professional experience, and where my journey has led me, read more about my Professional Background here.
I am a woman in my mid-forties. I have 4 young adult/adult children from 17-28, one son-in-law, 2 significant others, and we recently added grandchild number 7! Family gatherings at my house are exciting to say the least! I got pregnant at the age of 15 and married my husband, we will celebrate our 30th anniversary in June, 2011. I have strived to be a good mother, a good wife, a good person. I have learned many things along the way and I still have a lot to learn. I have dealt with depression, perfectionism, and personal near-death tragedies.
The months October 2009-October 2010 have been very hard on me and my family. You will be able to read my first posts after the launch to get some background on what has brought me to this place.
Living the Balanced Life is to be a resource for helping women AND men do the needed things to take care of themselves. We are always so busy taking care of everyone else, we neglect ourselves. We must address these areas, or our mind and bodies will eventually rebel, depending on the severity of your personal situation.
In my blog, I will provide information in the 8 different topic areas, as well as recommend and provide for purchase, resources that I feel can help you in your journey towards balance. My hope is to eventually, as my own healing process allows, create my own products and services to help you as well.

I also have a personal blog where I share personal ramblings, appropriately titled, Ramblings of a Woman. Feel free to visit me there as well!
