"I had a former life as an artist and entrepreneur. I would ‘rescue’ old furniture and paint it whimsically and sell in galleries and eclectic furniture stores. I would also custom paint for people, usually with complete freedom. It was a fun time in my life, but it ran its course. I discovered career counseling and was hooked. Now, instead of designing furniture, I help people design their lives."
