Greetings from Vancouver, Washington. This is a picture of me in our kitchen taken by my husband. I KNOW it’s not a professional head shot and it doesn’t give off that aura of professional speak that I guess I am supposed to convey if I want to succeed in this business as being a professional professional but that is really not what I am about.
I’m not out to be a super, crazy professional. I love working with Pinterest and my focus is to help Catholics in business experience success using some of the amazing results that can happen with Pinterest.
I am Catholic but I’m not a rabid, crazy by the book, toe the line kind of Catholic. I believe God lives in me and you and does wonderful, beautiful things with the person we are, just as we are.
I like Pope Francis a lot and Fr. James Martin S.J. and Richard Rohr, OFM and Catholics who live their faith and let others live theirs. If that doesn’t resound with you at least you know it upfront. 🙂
For 28 years I was a Catholic nun in a small Poor Clare monastery in Spokane, Washington. It was a wonderful life for many years until living the cloistered life starting closing in on me and after extensive counseling I made the decision to return to secular life.
I have always had an evangelistic spirit and I hope to continue spreading my Catholic faith and helping others to do so as well. While there are many, many ways to witness I believe Pinterest is the fastest, most engaging way to get results for Catholic organizations and businesses.
When I was in the monastery I created and ran Franciscan E-cards which was one of the most popular Catholic e card sites on the internet. It was working with the e cards that I gained expertise in working with Photoshop, Indesign, and other graphic programs. Now I am working from home and putting this talent to work with Pinterest outreach.
My own Pinterest site increased dramatically in just one month by implementing consistent Pinning and SEO strategies. Before this I had been on Pinterest for about five years but had not settled down and worked on it with a step-by-step plan. Pinterest loves consistent activity and once I started learning how to make great pins and pinning them using keywords, content rich descriptions and call to action implementations I was amazed at how fast my presence on Pinterest grew.
My hope is that I might help a few other Catholic organizations or businesses enjoy these same results. If you are new to Pinterest or just considering it as something to try I would be glad to work with you to get more traffic to your website.
