About

I’m a Mom, wife and entrepreneur. I own and operate several businesses throughout the U.S. and Canada and currently blog about the paleo lifestyle.  

As a student of Thomas Jefferson and graduate of the University of Virginia, I know that learning is a lifetime endeavour.  To that end I’ve been blessed with a career and life full of learning experiences.

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur I worked in the crazy world of policy and public relations in the Federal government in Washington, DC.  My favorite “job” to date has been working for Senator Christopher Bond (MO) and his Senate Small Business Committee where I honed my writing skills and was able to really do what I love – learning something new!  I had the amazing opportunity during this time to investigate and research new topics and larger global issues, all the while meeting some pretty amazing people along the way.
 
Through my real estate investing business, JL Investing, LLC,  I’ve spent over ten years learning the ins and outs of residential and commercial real estate and through this work, my husband and I have created a life that has allowed our family to travel and experience the world.  Our most recent real estate endeavor has included working with Canadians interested in investing in real estate in the United States.
As a small business owner and through my consulting company, Efficient Enterprises, Inc.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with countless small business owners throughout the world. Whether it’s been providing public relations help, ghost writing services or business consultation on how to effectively use interns in a small business, I learn just as much from my clients as they learn from me.

My business claim to fame is that I’ve survived 10+ years as a small business owner and on occasion have  been featured in some pretty cool business related articles including:  Entrepreneur.com, The New York TimesFortune.com, and Forbes.com.  

The bulk of my writing to date has centered around professional business writing including:  press releases, PR, marketing, brand strategy, article and informational “how to guides” and business plans and proposals.

Over the years I have blogged both on our business websites as well as a few personal travel sites.  You can see samples of my creative and informational blogging on My Blogs page.

I’ver recently launched pure+paleo, a clean confection line of paleo desserts.  This new endeavor allows me to marry my two loves, food and health and wellness.
