I am a seeker of all things unique….looking for inspiration in all things….a bohemian at heart…..adventurer….living life loud and curious…..and these tales are some of what i have to share….enjoy…..
I am an accomplished artist, designer and gardener with an admitted compulsion for natural healing and a spiritual connection with the earth. A lifelong serial entrepreneur. I have started and grown several successful businesses. I have an extensive visual merchandising background a gift with marketing and have won awards for both. I am often described as being energetic, creative and endlessly trusting of the power we all have within us. In these short tales I hope to challenge and inspire you to live a more creative and fulfilling life both personally and in business.
My story is as diverse as my daily routine. Many years ago I started a mail order catalog business ~ we were the first catalog to actually ship live Christmas trees directly to the consumer via UPS. I was in the home furnishings business both retail & wholesale and ran a successful home furnishings manufacturer’s representative organization representing over 40 small businesses. For almost 10 years I was CEO of Eminence Style, a design & import firm specializing in European Country furniture and custom designer upholstery. I have an extensive visual merchandising background, a gift with marketing and have won awards for both. Along the way I also began to consult small businesses and give talks and lectures on how to be true to yourself and nurture a business and life that reflects that. In addition to my business experiences, I have led workshops on healing, personal growth and entrepreneurship.My recent endeavors have been The Martyn House Farm, which is home to Glamping and The Martyn House In Towne Coffeehouse.
I see a future filled with more travel, interesting conversations and following my passions wherever they take me……
