I am a New Orleans native, Hurricane Katrina survivor, a Virgo, a curl-friend community member, a foodie, a travel enthusiast, a yoga lover, a self-care devotee, a novice photographer, social influencer, media personality, blogger, and podcaster. I am so excited to share this space with you and invite you into my world.
After graduating from the University of New Orleans with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts Degree in Mass Communications, my full-time radio career began in Baltimore,MD. I would then go on to grace the airwaves of St. Louis, Tampa, Chicago, XM satellite radio and ultimately, a nationally syndicated radio show. While in Chicago, I executive produced The Loni Swain Show , which was a weekly 30-minute slice-of-life cable television show highlighting people and organizations that are making positive contributions to their community. I also started my own chocolate candy company, Loni Loo's.
My life and career have both had lots of twists and turns and cross-country relocations to make for interesting stories and experiences. I began to share my journey through both my blog and my podcast , and I recently began inviting others to share their stories as well. I hope that you not only enjoy my blog and podcast, but that you also take away some valuable insight and inspiration to help you along your journey as well.
Things I love…

happiness is when what you think, say and do are in harmony
anywhere can become home, if you find community
their is a music playlist that can help you through any life experience

freedom is found when you let go of fear
