I've never liked writing "About Me" or "Bio" pages, yet here I am attempting to write something that will awe you and lure you into my world. The short version of me - I'm a mess. But I'm a beautiful, redeemed, free and forgiven mess. I have hurt others and have been hurt by others. I've done things I am not proud of. Even so, I am an overcomer. I am funny - like, hilarious at times; it's what keeps me sane. I am honest. I waste no time because time is precious and is not in our control. We've got one shot at this life - let's live it on purpose, with purpose and let's slide into our last day gritty and dirty knowing we left it all on the table!

My brain on – – – Sports: Specifically college football. Football is necessary to usher in the Fall season – #GoDucks!!! The two go together. Along with logs on the fire, hot chocolate and Christmas trees. Dogs: Small or large, all become a chore.

What a strange day today was. Last week I was talking to one of my coaching clients about triggers. I told her how triggers could either debilitate you or enlighten you. I also confessed that I still have moments where something or someone, even a smell, will cause a painful memory from my past. We Read more about Look What They Made Me Do <<< I HAD to – But It Totally Applies![…]
Seriously. Can you think of a worse job?
Fifteen years ago I was selected for jury duty in Southern Oregon. The case was a medical malpractice suit. It was the hardest three weeks of my life. A young woman was misdiagnosed and ended up having inflammatory breast cancer. By the time her case got to us, she had only two years left to live. Read more about What Does Your Worth Cost?[…]

Tam (that’s me): Chat, chat, chat – question, question, laughter. L: Laughter, chat, chat – answer, answer, question. L: What did you and your husband do in Nashville?
