About Me

First – fun stuff

Hi – I’m Tina.  I have a wonderful husband and 3 amazing children. (I am a proud mama!) They all keep me pretty busy!

I enjoy reading, drawing, sitting by a crackling fire, playing games and doing puzzles with my family, puttering with my flowers, music, and my pets (cats, dogs, ferrets, and a rabbit).

I have been a music teacher with children in elementary and middle school. I also taught elementary classrooms. I really enjoyed teaching 2nd and 4th graders.  I also had the privilege of working for 13 years with a company that assists people with intellectual disabilities.

I appreciate a good sense of humor. I like to have fun goofing around with my friends. A yearly “girl’s weekend out” with my daughter is something I cherish.


Not so fun stuff


I don’t want to go into details here, but I had cancer back when I was in my early 30’s. Many years later, the side-effects have left me with some challenges. (Read more about this on my My Story page)

New Adventures – finding a way to work with those side-effects

I’ve had to branch out a bit. New side-effects keep creeping up; or old ones continue to get worse. I am grateful for the support I have from family and friends.

Support For Cancer Survivors

I want to make this a place where cancer survivors can get, and give support.

I also plan to post more of my adventures with life after cancer. I had trouble finding people with my type of cancer and was often frustrated because I felt so alone as I looked for someone who could relate, or a “support group”.

I decided to join Wealthy Affiliate for help.

I am  creating websites. I have 2 right now. I have no previous experience, but I’m working on learning. Originally I hoped to earn an income through my account with Wealthy Affiliate.  While this would still be sweet, my main goal now is to somehow reach, and help other survivors.  I like to dabble with my websites. I’ve added a link to the company I’m working with if you are interested in creating a website of your own.

My other website

I’m also making a website about one of my favorite hobbies – drawing. It’s one that I’m doing just for fun but I have some of the things I’ve drawn posted. Check it out. Fun Drawing Sources

Maybe you can share some of your art!
