Details are important. But those details seem to get lost in life when you have a family, job, and lots of interests. I have always been inquisitive but was willing to skim the highlights. This was not an option in my job as a scientist. Details could make or break the outcome of an experiment. But life is not an experiment. It is a journey.
Memories are becoming more important and I want to share them with my family. As I move into the storyteller position of my family, I am wanting to help others recapture their family history also. There were stories I remember hearing as a child from my grandparents and great-grandparents; photos of extended family, vacations and trips that were taken; and home movies of silly family time. Recovering all of these can be very difficult when the technology has changed and you can't watch a family movie, or the color is quickly fading away from a photo album of beloved childhood memories and family ancestry. Our memories are what makes us who we are and passing those memories on is important.
I will listen to your story and survey your collection of photos and other memorabilia. Then I will offer you options to consider. I value your time and will work with you to handle the process professionally and with respect of your valuables. I provide peace of mind, skillful handling of media, innovative ideas for manipulating your memories and professionalism all the way. Every clients job will be handled individually, based on your needs and expectations.
I love to make connections to people and their stories. I want you to be able to make those same connections. My life path has brought me here and I am very ready to tackle a new project. My background has been varied and I have always been a learner. I have a BS in Biological Sciences and MS in Natural Health. I was a high school science teacher. I have been a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician for over 40 years and I teach EMT classes at our local hospital. I was a Creative Memories Consultant for many years. I joined APPO, Association of Professional Photo Organizers, to help guide and support me as I venture down this new road. My family is growing and moving on, I want to help them stay connected to where they came from. Let me help you with your journey.
