I launched this site in the midst of my “professional halftime,” in Fall 2019. After 20+ years in the corporate world, I took the summer off to invest in my family (last year, we moved back to the States after eight years in China) and to write a book.
For those who have visited this site in the past, I thank you for your patience!
I had some trouble with the first developer and know the load time was a challenge, but recently met the wonderful Fred Campos at DFW Website Designers, who has fixed it (Thank you, Fred!) Now I’ll be able to blog more frequently here – so stay tuned!
Please flip to THE FUTURE for an update on the book.

I've been asked to share more about Puffin the pug, so here’s a post all about him! He’s a #rescuepug we’ve cared for these last three years. It was love at first sight. Laini saw a photo of him posted on social media in Shanghai, left in a trash can with burns...read more
Once again, our #mobilebiosphere must exercise agility and pivot. Laini's school computer stopped functioning and she would like to head back to WA. As parents, we feel so blessed that she's highly self-motivated and cares deeply about her school work. So, after a...read more
