Bio: A southern gal at heart, from Arkansas originally, I've lived in sunny Phoenix, Arizona since 1967. I attended Washington High School (Class of 1980) & Arizona State University (B.S. Accounting 1984). I practiced as a C.P.A. in a local firm until my disability required I retire in 1997. I was forced to retire at age 35 when I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome & Chronic Fatigue. I had strained my brain and body with constant stress and had developed a sleep disorder which prohibited any restorative sleep. Sixteen years later, I have been managing my symptoms through prescription medicines, physical therapies, proper nutrition and vitamins, and have recently added doTERRA essential oils and wellness products to my multi-pronged health regimens. I live with my mother, Pat, and our two cockapoos, Gracie & Bella. My daughter, Jennifer, and her husband, Josh, live in Colorado Springs with my beloved Golden Retriever grand-dog, Gambit. I enjoy time with family & reading fiction is my favorite hobby.
