The Extended Version
I believe in intentional parenting, classical education, non-toxic living, and natural health.
I’m a Jesus-follower, youth leader, work-at-home mom, and small business owner. I’m also a homeschooling mom using Classical Conversations for our curriculum.
I moved from Miami, FL where I was born and raised, and live along North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast. I start my days with a daily devotion on the Bible app, a healthy dose of gratitude, pure essential oils, and coffee or hot tea. (I love both!)
My life is a delicate balance of embracing my inner Southern Belle while keeping my inner Miamian at bay. I’m still working on that. I love a good book. I have a weakness for killer desserts, and I think roughing it is a hotel that doesn’t put chocolate on your pillow.
- I’ve been blogging since the 90s.
- A digital marketing company once hired me based on my social media accomplishments, presence, and community – during the interview, the CMO addressed me using my social media handle! I jump in the car and go.
- I love spontaneous adventures with my two teenagers, exploring and making memories.
- I love traveling! I’ve traveled to 10 countries, 20 states, and 2 U.S. territories.

The DayngrZone Backstory
I started DayngrZone in 1997 as a creative outlet to help me survive my soul-sucking corporate job in Miami. Along the way, I found a passion for blogging and sharing life’s adventures as a single girl navigating life, to an accidental business owner, and then to a domestically-challenged military wife.
Now, I am a savvy small business owner, digital content creator, social influencer, and mom, mostly parenting solo and mastering the work/life balance while running my businesses and homeschooling my kids.
