I grew up in a small town in Western North Dakota. I have 3 older sisters and a twin sister. I was raised in a single parent home because my dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis before I was born. By the time I was 3 years old my mom had to place him in a nursing home because she could no longer take care of him. We always had enough food and all the other things we needed, but there wasn’t money for “extra” things. All 5 of us worked summer jobs so we could pay our own way through college. After I graduated from college I moved to El Paso, TX to begin my teaching career.
I loved teaching but it was very stressful and time consuming. The stress and the long hours began to take a toll on my health. Then my twin sister introduced me to Young Living Essential Oils. The minute she began diffusing Stress Away I felt a sense of calmness and felt a glimmer of hope. I ordered my own Premium Starter Kit and immediately fell in love with Joy. The emotional support and the sense of well being the Young Living products brought to me became invaluable during my last 2 years of teaching. I retired in the spring of 2016. Now I am ready to begin a new chapter in my life helping others find the same sense of well-being and “JOY”that I found by using YL oils.
