Welcome madams and monsieurs to the Anderson family! We’re very excited to be sharing this journey with you.
Before we start highlighting tales of cuddling iguanas and trying out escargot for the first time, we would like to introduce each member of the Anderson family to you. We’re a dynamic bunch and each have a different story to share:
Ike a.k.a “Papa Bear”
Lover. Hugger. Talker. Those are the three best words to describe me. I love connecting with kindred spirits and diving deep to get to know people on that “next level.” Part of this contributes to one of my biggest passions in life: impacting the growth of humanity to love and realize that we’re all one. Though I am the most loving in the family, I am the most impatient. It’s quite a paradox but keeps things always lively.
And here’s a little secret I’ll let you in on: I’m stubborn as ever when it comes to change. Plans, schedules, calendars are my jam. If you need something planned and sorted, I’m your guy.
Natalee a.k.a “Mama Bear”
Just as the nickname says, I’m the momma bear of the crew. I keep this crazy ship afloat and have my other half, Papa Bear, doing it with me. I was born in Jamaica and met Papa Bear in high school. You can say we were high school sweethearts since we married in 2002. Does childbirth, wrestling with toddlers to eat their food and balancing dinner time and work appointments count as adventures? If they do, then it’s been a non-stop adventure ever since…enough to write a movie script.
For years, I practiced accounting but then decided I love people more and wanted to have fun with them instead of numbers. So that’s what I did. My happy place is at the beach. I love adventures and new experiences. I deeply enjoy being in the company of friends, music, and dancing. More than anything though, I love my crazy family.
