“I need to get away…”
Who among us hasn’t said it?
I learned to love the open road as a child with a bi-coastal family who couldn’t afford airfare for five. We spent many hot summers in the family’s Vista Cruiser station wagon, and although I am not naming dates, it was back in the days when Route 66 was still fully maintained, and air conditioning was a major feature in billboard advertising.
Today you’ll find me exploring highways and byways by motorcycle. That’s where I encounter people, places, and adventures to inspire my life and work.
I SPEAK to businesses and community organizations about facing fear and harnessing that energy for personal growth. I’ve survived punishing weather, distracted drivers, a stolen wallet, running out of gas, and having trouble finding a safe place to sleep at night.
I WROTE Hit the Road: A Woman’s Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring in 2018—digital and print.
“Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons From Friends Who Faced Cancer,” and its companion guide won three awards, and are currently out of print.
I WRITE and EDIT books, web copy, and content for clients, as well as for myself.
MY MOTTO: Pack Light. Travel Slow. Connect Deep.
