2013…’s been a wild year.  Once again, I’ve gotten to travel the world, reunite with many friends and familiar faces, meet countless new ones, and continue to make strides in my professional career.  This summer, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, which kick started a lifestyle change which, so far, has resulted in a drop of 20+ lbs.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and love.  I wish all of you the very happiest of holiday seasons.  I’m looking forward to marching into 2014 with my continued quest to drop weight and conquer the booth.  I also am gearing up for more appearances all over this lovely globe and I look forward to seeing you!  Hug your friends and loved ones, be thankful for all the blessings you have, and let’s make 2014 the best yet.   See ya soon!!!
