About Me

I was born and raised in Virginia, and I couldn’t imagine a better place to live than among the great Blue Ridge Mountains. I can remember a time when living anywhere but the small farm town I grew up in was unacceptable. But now, I often wonder why I waited so long to move to such a quiet place as this. Seeing hills and mountainsides blanketed with fields and cattle has never been so beautiful. Farm life and mountain life truly do suit each other well here.

I am an author and photographer with over a decades worth of experience in the media industry. From newspapers and magazines, to websites and blogs—you could say I was built to be “social”.

But in 2009, when my son was born, I realized that life needed to change. We weren’t eating that healthy, or living that healthy. And suddenly, a few health changes here and there, and now we have chickens, rabbits, quail, a garden, and more. Our health journey turned into a homesteading journey, and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m a family herbalist and I wrote a book about it. I love chickens, and I wrote a book about that too.

While my son and husband enjoy the fruits of this homestead’s labor, I am basically a one woman show at times. I do what I can mostly by myself, not because I have to, but because I enjoy doing everything myself. Whoever said women can’t farm is out of their mind. It is my happy place. It is my serenity. 

I love Jesus but everyday I fail Him.

I love organic food but I also love Oreo’s.

I believe in second chances, grace, and that broken people make the biggest impacts in the world when they share their stories.

I believe in stories. And I’m sharing mine . . .
