This remarkable woman is well known to long-time MBN members. Newer members soon recognize her warm and friendly smile and her welcoming demeanor.
She is a Past-President, has chaired several sub network groups, compiled the first MBN Directory, and has been a presenter and vendor at many MBN Women's Symposiums.
As an internationally known speaker and author, she is especially well-known as a parent educator and family coach. She hosts a radio show, is the author of over 20 books, hundreds of articles, and was recently featured in her first movie!
Her professional passion comes from her equally successful and challenging career as a foster mother, biological mother to six, grandmother to 10 and a marriage of 48 years. As a testimony to her success as a parent, her grown children are successful and happy adults who all like each other.
Always entrepreneurial, she funded her children’s college educations by starting a business called “We’re Nuts!” where her whole family prepared German roasted cinnamon almonds served in little paper cones and sold them all over Missoula!
Also known as Auntie Artichoke, I am honored to introduce my good friend and our colleague, Judy Wright!
