This week’s #nuts spotlight shines on Debra Cincioni, @momsofamerica. She been part of our #nuts community since its inception and her humor and zest for life make every day a joy!
When asked to provide a biography by the amazing folks here at Midlife road trip, I thought ok…I can say that I am the President and co-founder of Moms of America, a membership-based organization for moms and women.
Or I could stick with the mundane…I’m a mother of four and a businesswoman with experience in Internet ventures and list out all of my accomplishments both in business and in life…such as one I am extremely proud of… I graduated with Honors about 8 yrs ago with a Bachelors degree in Integrative Studies comprised of Psychology, Management and Information Technology …I have often used the principles gained from this academic discipline as a consultant for start-up and early-stage companies….
– or I could simply be myself and speak from the heart….
The most fun that i have had in the social media arena has been in meeting and supporting people.
It has caused my world to both contract and expand. Contract by bringing people from across the globe into my life, and expand by making my small world a much larger and enriched place to dwell. I have had the honor of meeting a lot of my online friends in person or through skype
I have found out the things that embarrass me the most, have been the things that have shown me the most about myself. That the term “playing in traffic” took on new meaning as i spoke at a @JeffPulver event with some friends Beth : @BethFrysztak and Carol: @ProjectQuinn about this very subject and its relevance to our online emergence into the social media world.
That I had to close my eyes to hit the enter key on tweet deck to post the link to an article by Bit Rebels listing me as one of Twitters Top 75 Badass Women .
Because of that article I was asked to do an interview with several people and finally chose to be interviewed by Tony Hastings : @TheTop10Blog in a very fun yet open way! The interview can be found here!
And now…look how far I’ve come! I can be a #Nuts Therapist, post some of the funniest questions that can be- and are !- erroneously interpreted… All just because I love to support my friends Sandi and Rick… and that support of my friends has become far more important to me than simply hiding behind an Avi. We grow.
Though my website is in the final stages of completion, my blog is completed on the site and can be found at http://www.momsofamerica.com/blog/ I hope to see you all soon and thank you for taking the time to read this! : )
Henie Reisinger, photographer, artist AND #NUTS Guest Therapist! As a photographer and mixed-media artist, Henie Reisinger smiles when people praise her vision. Unknown to all but a few, Henie sustained a serious eye injury at one-year-old, leaving her left eye completely blind and her right eye with limited vision. As an artist, Henie considers her work post-visual; her focus is tapping into the core of matter, meaning and experience.
Henie’s recent artwork encompasses sustainable and environmental pieces that utilize recycled elements from culturally relevant sources. Rich in texture, these pieces are highly evocative. Through her assemblage of words, pictures and contours, the artist structures her pieces by touch, trusting that the iconic imagery—so resonant with sense memory—will tell the story.

Looking for a Healthy Snack? This almond and date delight T is inspired by Larabar, a popular line of whole food bars that feature dates. This version mimics the taste of the beloved Almond Joy. While it wouldn’t be considered a low-fat snack, the combination of fruit, nuts and chocolate is much healthier than any candy bar. Recipe below.
