I've taken off time from the corporate world to raise my children with proper philosophy for a few years. I have worked with a music company and a destination club, filling more roles than I can count, including class instructor, student recruitment, business analyst, travel planner, client billing, contract writing, and "company glue". I learned a good deal about what to do, and what not to do, in business through my experiences. I am currently attempting to find work that will allow great flexibility while my husband and I travel with little notice.
I am married to NTOS member, Marc Mixon. We had our first child, a bright-eyed daughter, in November 2012. Our second, and final, child, a boy, will arrive in March 2015.
I love to see the beauty of the world and to understand how other people think and live through travel. I have had the travel bug since childhood. I particularly enjoy hiking anywhere in the world, visiting and learning about historical locations, and understanding how and why cultures developed. I have also been a musician all my life, playing flute, piano, singing, and listening. I like a large variety of music, from classical to a few current pop songs. Though pregnancy and parenting have put a damper on my ability to get out, I love to dance. Marc and I met swing and tango dancing many years ago.
I must cheat. I love Atlas Shrugged, because the story is eloquently written and is nearly impossible to put down. But The Virtue of Selfishness brought the philosophy out of fiction and explained how it can work in our society. I would not want to be without either.
My husband, after he read Atlas Shrugged and explored further.
I moved to Dallas when I married my husband. He introduced me to NTOS. I truly enjoy the friends I have made and the meaningful discussions I have had through the society and look forward to a future with reason.
