I am an entrepreneur with a passion for helping other small business owners succeed! I believe in the "work smarter, not harder," approach to business and try to apply it in every area of my life. I've been married for over 30 years and together, my husband Tim and I have two children. In my free time, I love to go to the lake, shop, and enjoy time with family and friends.

I grew up in the Winston-Salem area, and graduated from R J Reynolds High School. I didn’t go to college straight out of high school, but instead - joined L’eggs (now under the umbrella of HanesBrands) and spent the next 25 years climbing my way up the corporate ladder. Eventually, I did take some classes at High Point University, but my best education has come from experience. In 2005, my entrepreneurial drive kicked in. Perhaps it was being married to an small business owner — his own entrepreneurial drive must have rubbed off! In May that year, I joined the Lewisville Professional Business Association with plans to launch a women’s magazine. Today, I am the owner of Forsyth Woman and Forsyth Woman Engaged! magazines and co-owner of Forsyth Family and Forsyth Community magazines. I have never worked harder than I do as a business owner, but I love every single minute of it! It’s afforded me some truly amazing opportunities, including the opportunity to work with some of the finest this community has to offer!

This is a hard question because I have been so blessed in many ways. Probably my greatest achievement was the night that over 500 people gathered to celebrate the 100th issue of Forsyth Woman magazine. My 2005 start up business was recognized in such a huge way with so many coming together to celebrate it! Forsyth Woman has spawned three other titles and I am thrilled with how far we?ve come!

Google Drive! We use it every single day to manage shared documents and files.

Listening to what your clients need and want is a highly underrated skill. Those who master it may find themselves ahead of the game.

This is another very hard question to answer because there are so many people I admire and respect. But, if I have to choose one, I will choose my dad. My dad is a man of quiet strength who gives so much and asks for so little in return. He is a part of our distribution team and I don?t know what I?d do without him!

Shortly after I began Forsyth Woman, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Going through cancer is hard enough. Going through it as a new, small business owner was, in a word, overwhelming. Fortunately, I had a great support team to help get me through it and manage the business while I recovered.

Understanding that change isn?t always bad. Change opens up doors of opportunity when we are courageous enough to look!
