Hi and welcome! I’m Stevie.

My heart’s desire is to share inspiring ideas and helpful personal and career development information. This site is where I leave a breadcrumb trail for others to discover. I hope you enjoy!

My short story.

What I do consistently is dive deep into topics that interest me. Then I strive to share what I learn in a useful and inspiring way.

As a personal growth author and encourager extraordinaire, I’m an advocate for enhanced well-being through disciplined attention to mindset and focus. I’m the author of Bliss or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts. I help people focus their mind and tune into their intuition to live a more satisfying life. My favorite thing is to help others maximize their potential.

I’m also an audiobook narrator and producer. At this time I seek out special projects that fit certain parameters. You can learn more at SparksPress.com.

I grew up in Oklahoma, but as a military spouse I’ve moved around a lot, and currently make my home in Las Vegas. I have an M.A. in Counseling from Seton Hall University and a post-graduate certificate in Career Counseling from the University of California at San Diego.

A little more.

After college, I married my high school sweetheart. Shortly after, I left Oklahoma as we set off on his career with the Air Force which spanned 20 years and a plethora of homes across the country including California, Wyoming, Texas, New Jersey, Georgia, Nevada, and Virginia. I currently live in Las Vegas with my husband and our two kids who homeschool (Unschool, actually…heard of it? It’s incredible!).

It turns out I’m a gypsy at heart, and I might never have known it if I wasn’t dragged kicking and screaming from Oklahoma. Where are we going next? Who knows? That’s half the fun!

Along the way, I’ve worked a variety of jobs including executive assistant and various clerical temporary positions, recreation center facilities manager, sports league director, medical office coordinator, workforce development program manager, career consultant, and adjunct faculty.

Eventually, I came to understand (and prefer) that my husband and I would not be settling down anywhere so I created a portable career for myself. SparksPress LLC is the umbrella for my work which includes: internet marketing, audiobook narration and production, and consulting.

Thank you for your interest in my story. I hope you find the information I share useful and inspiring.
