Do what you love

In high school, I struggled determining my major for college. (Heck, I still didn’t know what I wanted to do when “I grew up” well into my thirties.) My school counselor asked me what I liked doing – my problem wasn’t that I couldn’t find my passion, it was that I loved doing so many things! However, when I stopped to think of specific activities I enjoyed, I discovered I really liked decorating our hallways during homecoming as well as planning for prom. This conversation led me to major in Art, but after two years in this discipline, I realized the difference between being artistic compared to being creative. I also realized I missed working with people in a variety of different settings.

You see, I LOVE meeting lots of new people, and I’ve always tried to attend as many events as I could, including camps, contests etc. Connecting and networking with others is both my passion and my talent. I also found out later in life that another term for “hallway decorating” is event planning in the career world. After having attended a week-long Chamber conference, I can honestly say I have found my calling, mixing all of my many passions into the one career path of Chamber work. I guess my counselor knew what she was talking about, after all!

Happy Anniversary, Baby!

On June 6, Gerard and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. (Gerard likes to remind me this was D-Day thus we got married on the “Longest Day” - such a funny guy.)

To celebrate the day, there was dining, drinking, dancing, laughing, singing, and sharing. The only thing missing to make it the perfect anniversary would have been to celebrate with my husband! Instead, I was in Madison for a conference – but I think I may have eaten enough for the both of us.

I'm so glad I was able to attend a great Chamber conference, but I'm even happier to get back home to my boys.

Thanks, Gerard, for supporting my career as well as being a loving husband and dad! Love you!
