A world-traveling interpersonal relationship guru on a quest for life's deeper meaning and the perfect nude lip. Not yet convinced they're not one and the same?

Come with me.

What makes a veracious voyager?

Veracious voyagers value authenticity and the insight it creates within ourselves and others. We seek and explore new parts of the world and ourselves.  Let’s be veracious together.

Join me on this journey, for reflections, experiences, stories, and practical advice you can use in your everyday life.


Travel & Adventure

For those who believe not all who wander are lost.  I travel the world (with just a carry-on!) and now you can come with me.

Beauty & Style

For those who like to make chic happen. All the time & money I’ve spent figuring out this fashion & beauty stuff means that now, you don’t have to.

Advice & Opinion

For those who like their wisdom with a side of wise-ass. The things I’ve seen. The lessons I’ve learned. The stories I can’t wait to tell.


Who am I?

A Texas-born Communication Studies professor turned Montana hiking enthusiast, outdoorsy yet unapologetic glittery girl, voracious and veracious world traveler, seeker of joy and adventure, giver of insightful relationship and life guidance, offerer of informed (or, at least, entertaining) opinions on just about any topic, and grateful inhabitant of a surprising life.

Veracious Voyager is a natural evolution of my classroom: a non-judgy, laid-back place where acceptance meets a swift motivational kick in the ass.

Why should you listen to me?

To sum up, with gerunds: Earning a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Language (pretty sexy huh? I geek out with this one. WTF is a gerund?, you’re asking yourself, right?) and a Masters Degree in Communication Studies, winning a teaching award at Texas Tech, pursuing an acting career in L.A., surviving a divorce, finding true love (with a high school classmate!), writing two novels, creating a brand-new approach to teaching Interpersonal Communication after being named a full-time college instructor, becoming obsessed with places like Bali, Northern Spain, Yellowstone & New Zealand, recurring on Dallas CBS affiliate news station TXA21 as their Relationship Expert, becoming a full-time college instructor, and being named one of the “Fresh Faces of Fashion” by Modern Luxury Dallas Magazine.

Also, because I know what a gerund is.

In need of some wisdom with a side of wise-ass?

Want to build up your confidence? Learn how to resolve conflict & improve every relationship you have? How about sharpening your intuition and better predicting others’ behavior? Maybe you’re in need of advice, or maybe you just want to pack the perfect carry-on for that summer trip to Europe. Well you’re in luck.

 I am available for personal consultation, public speaking, and other engagements on these topics and more. Let’s figure out how to deal with those people who drive us “crazy” without going crazy ourselves, and look and feel fabulous while we’re doing it.  Oh! And let’s chat about that perfect nude lip.

veracity \vəˈrAsitə\ (adjective):

Truthfulness; accuracy; authenticity, especially from one who also speaks fluent snark. (I made up that last part.)

glittery girl \gli-tərē gərl\ (noun): 
Origin: Australia (Credit Liane Moriarty)

Those who “aren’t necessarily the prettiest but decorate themselves...like Christmas trees, with dangling earrings, jingling bangles & delicate, pointless scarves.”  Also, one who is as likely to hike with gloss on her lips as bear spray on her hip.
