When life throws up a roadblock, it doesn’t mean we can’t keep moving forward.
Sometimes all we need to continue the journey is to just change lanes.
Hi friends, I’m the girl behind the blog and I’m so glad you’re here. I am passionate about helping women find their place in the world, especially when that place isn’t where they thought they’d find themselves in their particular stage of life.
Whether you’re a corporate ladder-climber who finds that the ladder you’ve been climbing is leaning against the wrong wall, a stay-at-home-mom whose role is changing as her kids grow, unexpectedly single, or just longing for something different than what you are experiencing and learning how to be where you ARE—no matter how you got here, there is a place for you.
Just Change Lanes is place to learn, to grow, to try new things, to dream big dreams. I am sure of this, because I am here with you—sharing my story so that you can share yours, and together we can become who we are meant to be—not who we thought we were supposed to be.
My journey so far: I have been married to my husband Jim for 17+ years, and we have three kids that span early elementary through teenager years. I served as a clinical speech-language pathologist and rehabilitation director in corporate healthcare for 15+ years, started an international fair trade medical apparel company from scratch, became the COO of a digital marketing company and most recently walked away from most of it, wondering how in the world I was so far from where I thought I would be at 40 years old.
I decided to focus on the things that mattered most to me as I grow older (and some days wiser): true and meaningful communication and connection. For my “day job,” that means helping business owners that are doing amazing things to connect and communicate with those that need their services. For my personal purpose, I hope to connecting women to their true selves, allowing real friendships and relationships to bloom and grow, so that together we can make this world a kinder, gentler, more loving place to call home.
I don’t have all the answers, and I log more screw ups than breakthroughs. If you find a connection through a shared lesson, if you can identify with a valiant effort gone tragically awry, or if you laugh at a familiar experience—I hope you will join me on my journey. You belong here. The best is yet to come.
