I am a mom of 2, wife of 1, zookeeper to a chinchilla, 3 dogs, 2 frogs, fish and cat. I am also a business owner by default, non profit founder by passion, inventor by desire and cancer survivor by the grace of God. I love kids, mine not others, food, cleaning, food, traveling, food, being cancer free, food, holidays, food, small towns, road trips, food and chatting with total strangers. I flunked college cause I couldn’t pass speech class and actually blew up my cake on my first Home Economics assignment which taught me that I better get used to cleaning things up and finding efficent ways to it. I started a successful cleaning and errand service company on a $37 budget so I know a bit about business. I also believe there are two kinds of people…those that do and those that watch others do. I am a doer! As a regular contributor, you will be able to follow me right here on A Healthy Mom or visit me on
