Meet Mary Rae Fouts

Welcome to my blog, Thoughts from Mary Rae Fouts

Greetings!  I'm Mary Rae Fouts. Welcome to my blog Thoughts from Mary Rae Fouts, where I talk about current happenings and offer my thoughts on a variety of topics.

I live in Pleasant Hill, California with my best-husband-in-the-world Jim and faithful canine companions Husky-mix Sid and Chow-mix Lexi.   I love to sew, garden, cook, bake, and collect wine.  Regarding my baking, I am admittedly a sourdough baking fanatic, baking bread, rolls, pizza, and other goodies with all sourdough starter, no active yeast.

I am a voracious reader, crossword puzzler, and Scrabble player.  I also collect Disney memorabilia, with particular fondness for the loveable donkey Eeyore.

I am passionate about my career.  I bring 31 years of tax, insurance, annuity, employee benefits, and related financial services experience to my clients, who typically have technical or complex concerns.  31 years ... Has it already been that long?  How time flies by!

 I focus my life on three simple concepts:  Say no to negativity.  Be true to yourself.  Don't just stay positive, be positive!  I do not worry about anything because worrying has never solved one concern or problem in the history of the Earth.  I focus on living each day in the moment, enjoying activities bring happiness to my personal life and professional career.
