I am Lavonda Van Benthuysen and I am a writer/blogger. This is a new venture for me as previously I served as a teacher, a communication specialist, and a program designer for North Carolina state government. I chose to be a public servant because I truly love North Carolina and wanted to serve the citizens of this most special state.
I have never been very comfortable talking about myself, but totally enjoy recognizing others who work hard and who do things to make our lives better. I appreciate the vast talents of those who contribute to our society as a whole.
I love “Oh Wow” moments when something amazing gets my attention. Perhaps a beautiful flower, stunning architecture, or the open arms of a child running to meet me.
I want to continue to serve the people of this state and those who are interested in learning more about things that I feel matter. I hope to provide you an opportunity to have some “Oh Wow” moments when you visit my blog.
