I have a Bachelor's in Health Promotion and Education with an emphasis in Consumer Studies...long story short, I get people and the underlying issues that contribute to their individual decision making process.

"I am a Children's Librarian and picture book author who lives on a 25-acre farm in Texas with my husband and 5 children. Basically I am surrounded by books, kids, and furry animals.

I have a Bachelor's in Health Promotion and Education with an emphasis in Consumer Studies...long story short, I get people and the underlying issues that contribute to their individual decision making process.

I also have a Master's degree in Library Science and while that may not seem related to health promotion, I assure you it is. Librarians promote open access to information which indeed is a health issue. I am a firm believer in the adage, "Knowledge is Power" and I advocate for every person's right to education.

Throughout the course of my career I have written multiple articles for a local monthly magazine, written and obtained grants to enhance the services of two libraries, and critiqued book manuscripts that have successfully obtained publication.

I graduated from high school at the age of 17 and went on to receive Cum Laude recognition in undergraduate studies and complete graduate studies with 3.75 GPA. That is my pretentious way of saying; I know how to study.

Learning is a process and I do not expect perfection or grand knowledge and I will never think you are dumb. I know my kids often worry their teachers will think they are dumb if they ask questions and are embarrassed when they receive bad grades. I may have done well in school (as stated in my Study Skills qualifications section) but that does not mean I have never failed. Failure is how we learn. Do not be afraid to fail." less...
