Just us – Team Heck Yeah
I used to be a hard-charging, schedule and budget driven CEO on the Las Vegas Strip. Today, my favorite people call me Nana and I spend my time having fun and lingering with the people I love the most. Nothing excites me more than an adventure with "loose" plan because then EVERYTHING is possible!

I spent a night tending bar and pulling pints in one of the oldest pubs in Dublin, Ireland.
We had a blast last year - in spite of being painfully unprepared and ill. Some people advised us to wait until we were actually "ready." At this stage of life, I didn't want to take a chance on missing this opportunity - it may not come around again. Our goals were to stay friends, have fun and finish. Mission Accomplished! This year, I'm grateful I can have an opportunity to take another swing at this - we plan to take more showers, stay healthy and finish better!
I'm inspired by people who have successfully reinvented themselves throughout their lives to remain relevant. For example, after a childhood spent in poverty, Louis Hay started her career as a model, however, decades later, in her 60s she founded Hayhouse publishing and ran it until her death 30 years later. What a pivot!

I've walked the 500 mile long Camino de Santiago twice. I trekked alone in 2016 and then again in 2019 with my grandson. Both Camino journeys were life changing!
I founded and operate a construction supply company that is part of just about every road and bridge project in the state of California. I'm married and have 2 beautiful, grown daughters and I'm an eternal optimist! No matter what the challenge, I just know that somehow I can figure out a solution!

When I was 8 years old, Gene Cernan, Apollo 10 astronaut/pilot of the lunar module and the last person to walk on the moon visited our home in the Oregon sand dunes. I got to drive him around in the sand in our buggy to help him prepare for driving on the moon. He got stuck, I didn't.
We are not promised tomorrow - the passing of my mother earlier this year has really brought this home to roost for me. I had planned to spend a lot of time with her this year - I thought I had time. Pancreatic cancer had different plans and she died on January 1, the first day of the year and my birthday. When you're in the game, Rebelle requires your full attention. It would be easy to wait until there was time for all of the preparation, but we don't have time - life is now.
Even in death, my mom continues to inspire me. Through the difficult and painful days and nights of cancer, she was always sweet, lovely and interested in other people. Just because you're not having your best day, doesn't mean you get to be unpleasant to others.
