Hi, I'm Sharon Darrow. Welcome to my profile!
Sharon Darrow's Bio:
Sharon Darrow's family is her first priority. She's been married 47 years, and has two daughters and four grandchildren. She's lived most of her life in Sacramento, where she still resides with her husband, Stan, their great dane, Ellen, and their cats.
Sharon is an entrepreneur, having worked in family businesses for most of her life, and currently owns Travel ID Cards, which started off marketing the KidsTravelCard, a photo ID for children, and expanded to include other unique products, as well as custom ID cards. While offering quality products is important, Sharon feels that the most important thing her company provides is stellar customer service.
Much of Sharon's inspiration for the KidsTravelCard came from her twin grandsons. At 20 months they were diagnosed on the autism spectrum, but now at 12 they are fully integrated in school, little league, and other activities. Learning how to be supportive for the boys and their parents meant learning about autism, about how special needs children affect a family, and how important the family support system is.
Sharon has been passionate about animal rescue after more than 20 years of raising orphan kittens. She no longer fosters kittens, but still works closely with rescue groups. Sharon's first book, "Bottlekatz, a Complete Care Guide for Orphan Kittens" is currently being used as a training manual for rescue groups throughout the United States and the United Kingdom.
In 2008 Sharon joined the National Association of Professional Women. She then formed the first local chapter in the nation for the group, and served as the President for 3.5 years. She has stayed very active in the organization, which now has over 400 chapters modeled on the one she started in Sacramento.
Sharon's second book, "...and the good lord remains anonymous." is an inspirational, but non-religious memoir, based on the premise that there are no accidents in life. We live and learn from our experiences, then live even better. This book includes a wide array of subjects, including suicide, Hell’s Angels, bi-polar disorder, congressman, Alzheimers, kittens, ghosts, animal communications, children, autism, building a business, NAPW, reincarnation, cancer, dealing with death, business failure, business success, knife wielding hitchhikers, and more.
Sharon is currently working on two new books, and has a new blog with posts covering a wide range of topics. You can find her blog at sharonsdarrow.wordpress.com.
