Biography

Hi there! I appreciate you are taking a few minutes to get to know about me. I've enjoyed a fascinating journey of learning and experiences over the years. Let me share a little of my background with you.

My corporate years were in banking and personal finance. I left the corporate world in 2014 to follow my passion for research, writing, and nature photography. In tandem with my personal life choices, I began writing within the health and wellness community to share the benefits of nature-based and natural approaches to living a happier and healthier lifestyle. In the near future, I will be publishing ebook editions of four of my recent books in health and wellness.

Below is my formal profile for you to review. You can also visit ImageQuotesMMG.com to learn more about my work. I hope what I have learned can be valuable to you in YOUR learning journey.
