It has been a dream come true to write for Oprah.com. I am, and have been for as long as I remember, inspired by Oprah. I’m from Baltimore, Maryland and I watched Oprah on WJZ when she first started on television some 40 years ago. Each evening she told the news, but more importantly, she shared the stories of the people in the news in a way that that was personal and caring.

Over 40 years later she continues to share meaningful life lessons in an authentic, joyful, honest, and sincere voice.

The articles I write for Oprah.com speak to living artfully, connecting with family and friends, creatively finding solutions to life’s challenges, and simply celebrating life. Find me on Oprah.com here: Oprah.com
