Here is what a few of my clients have to say.


Now, to paraphrase (and sometimes quote) Anna Quindlen
and add my own thoughts, here is my real résumé:

I was a good friend to my husband of 40 years (who is now gone). My marriage vows meant what I said, so you can depend on my word.

I am a loving mother to three sons and their wives, and Oma to eight(!) grandchildren.
I listen to, laugh, cry, dream, and rejoice with them. I try to never let my profession come before these relationships.

I was a faithful daughter to my parents, also now gone, and am a faithful sister and a good friend to my friends, and they to me.

I surrender daily to God's leading in my life.

I would be rotten, or at best mediocre, at my job if these other things were not true.
