About the Author
About the Author: For Colleen Jais, life is a study of transition; life itself is her résumé. An artist living in the real world, Colleen has always worn many hats to fulfill the practical nature of the journey of daily life and all of its evolutions. A writer and an artist, a wife and a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a business owner and an entrepreneur, Colleen shows that each “change” along the way is simply an extension of her ability to assimilate and then access the wisdom born of life experience. Into the Slipstream taps into the “war chest of experience” that has guided Colleen and will guide others through the twists and turns of living their own personal journey.
