My name is Tomi and this is my dog, Sam. He’s a yellow Labrador Retriever, and the best friend a girl could ask for.

I have been an adjunct faculty member for almost twenty years. I have a masters in Speech Communication. Teaching Public Speaking has been very rewarding. I love helping people overcome their fears. I am also a certified grant proposal writer.

Some things I love:











There’s a pretty good chance you’ll see each of these in different posts.

I enjoy inspiring and helping others. I think we should all live the best life we can live. I believe with my blog I can reach a bigger crowd. I would love to make a difference, even if it’s a small one.

My work has been featured in Prairie Ink: A Literary Annual, The Christian Science Sentinel,  Blue Mountain Arts (work is currently in the market review process), Lifehack (tips for life), and TripAdvisor. I also contribute to Midlife Blvd. I am a member of the High Plains Writing Group.  

Thanks for stopping by!
