LocationTidewater, VA ExperienceI am a wife of 20 + years and mother of 2. My husband is recently retired from the US Navy and I have worked at the same company off and on for the last 20+ years. My work experience covers call centers, private shipping carriers such as UPS and DHL, etc and a bit of security (worked for TSA for almost a year.)
I am a licensed (inactive state presently) Real Estate Agent in VA.
I am an Novice Adult Irish Step Dancer and Registar for my dance school's annual feis. I have been a Challenger baseball booster club member and Team Mom. I have also been a BSA Cub Scout Den Leader and have volunteered for all sorts of fundraisers, etc.
Being a Navy wife of 20 years has taught me some home improvement skills out of necessity and the biggest thing I have learned is when to know to hire a professional. It may seem cheaper to do it yourself, until....
I have worked around young women nearly my entire adult life and have seen the same issues come around and around and around. I hope to spread some anecdotal experience so others don't fall into the same trap.
In 2012 I became a business owner. I own and operate Wig and Jig, LLC trading as Celtic Shoes. The US Southern Region Distributor for Fay's Irish Dancing Shoes.
