Meet Gretchen

A lover of purple, whole bean coffee and a good pedicure.

I’m a friend and leader who helps inspire others while learning from my own mistakes. I embrace the balance of authority and friendship as a mother and acknowledge that marriage is work with the benefit of a best friend who truly knows you.

I’ve learned to find the function in dysfunction, peace in my failure to keep house plants alive, and that a good read is sometimes the best medicine. Second to that is watching employees soar in their jobs and traveling for tradition and bucket-list adventures. I’m frequently a people pleaser, sometimes a hot mess, and always down for Mexican food.

I’m 47 and I believe you’re only as old as you feel.
