Hello Friends! I was born and raised in Northwest Iowa, and started her first career in Bank Marketing and Human Resources. The entrepreneurial bug bit 28 years ago, when I started a Portrait Studio, in Sioux City, Iowa. For ten years I operated a thriving and successful photography business. During my time in Iowa, I earned numerous photography awards and accolades through the Professional Photographers of Iowa as well as the Professional Photographers of America. Humbly I hold the title Marster-Craftsman, a degree earned through PPA. I sold my Portrait Studio in Iowa and joined Box Portrait Gallery in Oklahoma where I has been for the past 16 years. My ability to communicate and connect with my clients have made me one of the most sought photographers in the state.
I also began a teaching training career in the photography industry and is considered one of the top educators today. With honor I have taught thousands of photographers and business owners sales and financial success. Get this, I host an educational internet group of over 12,000 professional photographers. You will find me to be highly motivated, organized, creative, down to earth and professional. I am comfortable speaking to a crowd of 2000 or an intimate group of 20, you will find me to be extremely knowledgeable, intelligent and very easy to talk to.
In December of 2016, I put my camera down and semi-retired from photography. This decision has led me to create A New Life of her own and on that journey, God has laid it on her heart to start a Coaching and Mentoring career. "Your past has a purpose," and I am so excited to share my business knowledge and life experiences with you. It is my belief that you go don't go anywhere by accident, and wherever you are, God has put you there. He has put you exactly where you are because He wants to do something amazing through you. I am so excited to help you begin creating A New Life!
I am a Christian, love family, animals and community, and am Mother of 5 children. And I have a son and daughter in law and a beautiful grandson. Joyfully I have served on many committees, boards and has taken on numerous roles in my church and am ready to serve you!
