As improbable as it is to predict weather, so too is that of Coleen.  Described as a pragmatist by some, but on other occasions will challenge you to see beyond the status quo. The eternal optimist who believes that everyone should follow their passion as an essential element of creating a happy life. On the inside she is an aspiring Jazz singer ready to emerge. Enjoys traveling with family and discovering the local fare and cultures, whether in New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, or some little town on the coast in South Carolina, she’s wants to feel, and more importantly, act like a she belongs there.

Juggler on a seesaw.  That’s probably the best way to describe this business-owning mom of three who manages to fit in volunteering, running and photography in her free time (often in the wee hours of the night or morning). She first discovered her joint love of education and marketing at the age of 9 when she organized her massive book collection into a library and advertised it to the neighborhood on her purple boom box (it’s too bad the quieter and more far reaching social media weren’t around in the ‘80s…).
