Project Development Liaison
Becky loves encouraging others through the written word. She is passionate about inspiring friends to be the best versions of themselves. Becky says, “People just don’t write down family stories and anecdotes anymore. They were such a marvelous tradition even 50 years ago, but are becoming a lost art. Capturing these is truly vital if we want to pass down a piece of ourselves to future generations. The Whole Story Source is the culmination of all of the experiences and giftings that make up who I am.”
Becky, a native of Tallahassee, Florida, was educated at Malay School and received a BA from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in psychology. Over the years, Becky has honed her skills as a photographer, home-schooler, creative story teller, decorator, and space engineer, and is a successful Dr. Sears LEAN Health Coach.
