Hi. I’m Bethany.
I write stories of finding meaning in the world.
I’m an East Coast transplant moved to the Rocky Mountains. I have an amazing husband and two kids, who are now teenagers – so wish me luck. It’s not unusual in my house to hear a serious discussion over dinner about whether a shrinking ray also affects density. You know, the important questions.
I love the woods behind my house but you probably will find me communing with the trees instead of on a 5 hour power hike.
I’m insatiably curious and am led by my desire to learn new things. It means my resume reads like I’m five different people, but I prefer the term “Renaissance” to “flakey.” The highlights from my twenties ’til now are – Economics, law, graphic design, life coaching, marketing and writing. Believe it or not, I’ve gained awesome skills from each.
I’m fascinated by capturing the essence of a person and making it concrete so they may use it in a practical way.
Some tidbits about me:
I’m a romantic. I know I should try to be more sophisticated, but you’ll find me crying over soap commercials. I just can’t help it.
If reading were an Olympic sport, I’d be a top contender. I’m often happiest curled up on my couch in my pjs, reading a book. Don’t even ask how thick my glasses are.
I love to eat and dine at amazing restaurants, but I hate cooking.
I love fashion and clothes and I go back and forth between my cashmere East Coast preppy heritage and Boho outdoorsy casual of my adopted Colorado. Or just a tee and jeans if nothin’ is going on.
I love tech and productivity. Always on the quest for the thing that makes me sit up in my chair and peer avidly into the screen.
I love to travel with my family and usually fit in one great trip a year, but I’m much happier in a fancy hotel room than a tent in the middle nowhere.
I believe in deep conversations instead of cocktail party chatter. I believe that hardship sucks, but it can often put you on the right path to joy. I believe each of us has unrivaled stories and gifts. I believe that learning and exploring are key steps to a full life.
