Mardi was born in Portland, Oregon and spent much of her childhood on the north Oregon coast where she was encouraged to think things through for herself. Her career in the healthcare industry provided her the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the United States. She has also had the privilege of visiting a number of other countries. She is now "off road" and lives in Houston, Texas.
Mardi and her husband, Ray, share passions for travel, gourmet cooking, the arts, family and community. Mardi has found that it is important to engage in a variety of pursuits and experiences that help us better understand the diversity of the world around us. It is this diversity that makes our lives so very rich and rewarding!
Now, using her
Golden Partners brand, Mardi is writing books that she hopes will
inspire, encourage, and awaken curiosity. Based on her own personal
experience searching for God, she strives to keep it simple and
positive. Knowing that in the end, each individual must realize
their own journey.
