First, I’d like to introduce myself and tell you my butterfly story. My love of butterflies goes way back to when I was a child. My love butterflies opened the door for my creative juices to flow and instilled dreams for me in such things as the desire to learn to fly, to be a poet, and to be an artist.
My friends and family call me the butterfly lady because I have all kinds of butterfly-related items everywhere. I wear butterfly T-shirts, jewelry and anytime I see a piece of clothing with butterflies, I just must buy it. They laugh at me and keep asking, “Aren’t you sick of those butterflies yet?” I always answer, “Never!”
Ever since I was a little girl growing up in the countryside outside of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, I’ve been in love with butterflies. I would run after them as they fluttered away showing off their beautiful wings and I would wonder why I couldn’t have wings like that. Being a very shy and sickly, child I felt like having wings would give me confidence and power. I wanted to be a pilot so I could be up in the sky with the butterflies. If that wasn’t possible, I wanted to be a writer or artist as I loved to write poems about them and draw them.
After growing up I met a man who was a flight instructor and he taught me how to fly. Somewhere between the take-offs and landings, we fell in love, got married and had 3 kids. My dream of learning how to fly came true, but I didn’t pursue it as a career because my ears are too sensitive to the air pressure and flying caused me a lot of pain. So, I continued working as a typist and then as administrative assistant, which eventually led to me learning computers. After a career of over 30 years of typing, setting at a desk all day, and dealing with stressful deadlines, I developed back problems. I retired early and fulfilled another dream of starting my own business called the Butterfly Connection. I was eventually able to fulfill two other dreams—being a writer and a monarch advocate.
Being a monarch advocate doesn’t mean you have to have a degree. My knowledge comes from years of reading, studying and watching monarchs as well as being passionate about them. I have taken online courses on the monarch and received a certificate from the Monarch Lab at University of Minnesota.
