Q. How did you come up with the name Butterfly LifeStyle?

A. There's two reasons, first is that I have a thing for butterflies...they intrigue me! Secondly, it's no secret that butterflies live a short life and if you think about it we do too. I believe that like the butterfly and it's life; every day of our life should be beautiful, enjoyed and full of adventure while there's still time. So as I like to say, "Live a Butterfly LifeStyle"!

Q. Why writing?

A. I love writing! For as long as I can remember writing has been one of my favorite things to do. It's a very therapeutic forum for self expression if you think about it. 

Q. What are your goals?

A. This is something that changes almost daily for me. I'm a strong advocate for education and I truly believe that we never stop learning so school is my focus for now but the school thing all ties into my "Master Plan". I have plans to write a poetry/life lessons type book in the near future. Also, if you don't know; I'm a huge fan of music so I'm also contemplating song writing.
