I'm the founder/director of Batiks for Life LLC, a fair trade oriented business with a social mission to improve the lives of women in Ghana, West Africa by providing apprenticeships in the sewing profession. We manufacture medical scrubs and accessories using batik fabric produced in Ghana, and all the sewing of our products happens in Ghana, too. My home base in the U.S. is Albuquerque, New Mexico but I'm moving to Ghana in October 2015 to develop the next phase of Batiks for Life, namely a business and employment co-operative working with not only Batiks for Life, but other businesses manufacturing sewn products.

I'm also a writer, currently publish two blogs, and will be doing some guest blogging for nursing websites about the medical profession in Ghana. I have an idea for a novel that I want to pursue and have been encouraged to submit to travel magazines. Writing is a passion! I would love to help anyone with writing - anything from proofreading and editing, to writing copy for your website, to ghostwriting.

I also worked in the counseling field for 15 years and I'm skilled at listening and reflecting back what I've heard in a concise form. If you need life or business coaching, help narrowing down your brainstormed ideas into a workable plan, or just an hour to vent, I can help with that! I am a licensed counselor in the State of NM, but for liability reasons I am not offering "counseling" per se.
