My life is too full and exciting (or full and rich?) for me to be called ma’am.
I come to Don’t Call Me Ma’am with almost ten years of experience in cosmetics and skin care and I think of myself as an unlikely entrepreneur! I am happily married with three grown children out of the house, I love being with my friends and family. I work most days and bring my noisy dog Nala to the office with me. Among other activities, I read, cook, do yoga, walk the dog, play cello, cross country ski and occasionally get sucked into a great TV series.
I have lots of titles and not one of them is ‘Ma’am:’ I am a mother to one daughter, stepmother to two more, businesswoman, entrepreneur, wife, daughter, sister, friend, niece, colleague, cook, cyclist, writer, reader, traveller, cat wrangler, dog walker, horse manager, homework helper and essay editor. I love to ride my bike, hike the beautiful forest of the Pacific Northwest and walk the sand of the local beaches. I enjoy good food, good wine, spending time with family and friends and it feels like there are never enough hours in a day to do all the things I want to do.
