  • Last Friday I presented at a Pecha Kucha or Chit Chat event in a local town. I have never been a public speaker, always, until now, I have tended to close my throat and shut down my brain when I have had to speak before authority or a crowd. Evidently I just needed to find the right method to prepare myself because I nailed it and I loved it.

    What are three words you would use to describe Sandy?

    I admire Sandy because she is a lifelong learner, an explorer, and a
    bit of a bull dog.

    I think of myself as a more butt and na aaa a gggg girl.
