I am so happy you are here.   First, let's just get this right out of the way...there really is a hyphen in my name.  My name is pronounced  (La-wana) and believe me,  I get it, it is intimidating...even I am intimidated by it sometimes.


Just imagine the twelve grueling years of school I went through waiting for the teacher to get to my name on the class roster.  How did I know they had arrived... well, it was the P-A-U-S-E... yep, that was my chance to abruptly interrupt the moment I noticed they had arrived at my name... it's a true story!  However, that was then, and this is now, and I am happy to report that as time has gone on, I have actually grown to love my name and Its uniqueness. It is often a topic for discussion and it has branded me for sure in my profession and for that, I am grateful to be the only Lawa-Na I know of in New Hampshire. 



Let's move right along and talk about some of my greater accomplishments!  I am a wife, I am a Realtor, I am a dog mom, and the greatest accomplishments in my life thus far would have to be that I am...

The proud Mother of two AMAZING young men

Malachi Michael and Hayden Cole

and my sweet girl Hadley Grace

who joined us in September 2019 making us a true party of five

Those babies are Truly my greatest accomplishments to date


A few more fun facts about me... I start each day by hitting the snooze button at least two times, and the reality is that I have never been a morning person, and I typically like to stay up late.  However,  the minute my feet hit the floor, I don't stop until my head hits the pillow. 


I am a lover of Sauvignon Blanc, spicy margaritas, and Spanish cuisine. 


I am a podcast junkie, I love them.  In fact, I love them so much I had the brilliant Idea to created my own in 2018... which we can talk more about that later...


I am a  truth seeker of all things and I am certain this stems from a  very early time in my life when I started an inward journey of unveiling lots of truths... stay tuned for more on that...  One may call me nosy, lol! #sorrynotsorry.  I happen to consider it my way of staying in tune with what's happening around me and understanding why people do what they do... I ask lots of questions, and it's just how I roll.  I am an entrepreneur and a dreamer…  "can I get a raise of hands for all you overachievers".  My desk is often a mess, but i know right where everything is.  I operate at my best with a full plate because that's what feels good for me. 



I consider everything on my plate to be a  blessing but let's keep it real,  there have been many things in this life that have landed on my plate that I wouldn't necessarily have categorized as a blessing when it landed there...lol but to be honest,  over the years I've chosen to acknowledge these occurrences as the universe's way of giving me a friendly reminder that I am not in control of everything and to just trust the process. #trusttheprocess


I wouldn't call my life calm or balanced... I am a mover and a shaker and legit sometimes I find myself all over the place.  I do my absolute best to seek joy in all things, and I've come to learn that there is no mold for all of us to fit into. I am happy to see someone standing in their truth and strive to stand in mine too.  Live can get messy at times, and at this point in my life, I tend to look for blessings in the midst of the storm and have learned to just ride the wave.


One of my favorite quotes 

"calm her chaos

but never silence her storm"



This quote means so much to me that I tattooed my left wrist with a symbol that gives me that constant reminder to "embrace the journey"... this is an anchor for me. 


I will wrap up with this.  I firmly believe that there is great power in sharing our stories openly.  It is our opportunity to add value to others and it allows them space to show up and do the same. It is also an invitation and opportunity for us to experience great healing and embrace our own greatest strengths and growth. I hope that if you are hanging out with me here that you find yourself feeling empowered to share your story and stand in your truth. 

We are all worthy of being heard and seen, so if you are reading this just know that you are pure magic ... thank you for being here, now go shine your light.
