Hi, Erika. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Currently my 40th birthday is staring me down and I don’t intend to flinch.

My next decade is going to be my best yet. Ha, take that big 4-0!

But seriously, I am a long time graphic designer with a love of the written word. I went to tech college to study electronic publishing and then I worked for many years doing layout design and typesetting for magazines and books along with managing blog content.

I never felt comfortable in the traditional career box.

I was homeschooled in the 80s when homeschooling was hardly a thing, by a stay-at-home mom and a dad who ran his own small business. My childhood taught me a lot about hard work and personal responsibility, as well as prioritizing things of lasting importance rather than seeking immediate gratification.
