A new start

Hello, my name is Lindsey and I would love to welcome you here to at home with the Grice’s. Who am I? I am first and foremost a mother. I have three teenagers: Ashley (19), Brandon (17), and Isabella (15). I have spent the last 19 years focusing solely on my kids and raising them. Over the past few years, I have come to the realization that I really have not done much for myself. I had started my family early, and while I had the best intentions to stay together as a complete family, that just didn’t happen. I have been a single mom for 15 of those 19 years. A few years ago, I went back to school and got my Associates Degree in Business Management and am currently working towards my Bachelors Degree in Accounting/Finance with a minor in International Business. I work at the college in the Business Finance office. In addition to going back to school, as my kids get older, I have also started really trying to find me. Who am I really? What are my goals? What are my values? What are my passions? I love learning and take as many extra courses as I can, where I can develop my passions and curiosity. As a member, and former chapter President, of the International Honor Society: Phi Theta Kappa, I have had access to additional courses. I completed Organizational Leadership through the University of Johannesburg in South Africa, and am working on Leadership Essentials through the University of Notre Dame as well as International Business Principles from the University of South Carolina.

In addition to school, I like to learn about many other things. For years I have worked to create a home that was free of toxins and harsh chemicals, because I felt that it would help my son who has gone through many emotional and behavioral issues and I truly believe it has helped. That led me to learn about essential oils and to work on my own garden, as well as learn about herbs. I have recently started an Introductory Herbal Course online and will continue through the Intermediate, Advanced, and Entrepreneur courses. I love that I have the ability and opportunity to pursue passions and interests as they come.

Thank you for following along and feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
