For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I have finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I am writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about family, food and the world around me. I founded The Original Galley Girl with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and I am thrilled you have joined me for part of that journey!

For over 30 years my husband, Joe has been a mariner in one form or another. We started out on the West Coast, only a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and now reside on the Gulf Coast. We love to spend time with our grandkids, garden, explore new hobbies/interests and look for memory making adventures. 

I am a Director with The Pampered Chef and love the flexibility that affords me to make an income while working from home so that I can be present to raise our grandson, Sebastian. Navigating the rolling seas of Parenting 2.0 is definitely an adventure in itself!
