Welcome to Home and Garden Geek, a place for you to call home.
Thanks for coming along on my journey to redesign life after 50.
Age is not what defines us in life. Our outcomes, happiness and impact is.
Home and Garden Geek is about coming to a place in life where it’s time to take more control. I want to effect my family’s health in a more positive way and do everything possible to change the course of some.
Even with a healthcare background, I’ve come to believe more in more than just test, medications and procedures. Allopathic or traditional medicine does not hold the keys to health and happiness. When I refer to health, I’m talking about physical, mental and environmental.
So join me on the coolest journey of my life. Witness the amazing outcomes and take what you will to incorporate into your awesome redesign.
I can’t wait for you all to share your journey with me as well.

Home and Garden Geek: The Why
I come from a healthcare background where we learn it’s always important for people to understand “their why”. In my role as a lean consultant, I have learned that the “why” behind change is the single most important component in determining success.
That is why I feel it’s critical to my success as the chief geeker to share my why, my goals and my dreams. Hopefully this will lead you on a journey to discover and share yours as well.
So…here we go.
My name is Darlene (aka chief geeker). I love improving things for the good of others. At work I do lean process and Six Sigma improvement projects. I get to watch people embrace change every day because they are empowered to fix things.
What empowers you?
Here’s what empowers me and my major guided purpose in life:

I’d love for you to learn a bit more about this awesome crew. Check us out over on the About page to learn about the challenges these special people face in life and overcome each day.
Helping us all to feel better, be better and live to the fullest each and every day is my why for waking up each morning and resting my head each night.
Sharing this journey with you as we redesign life is my way of empowering you to change and showing you how to be successful.
