Hi there! I am a spirit hand-crafted by God. I am a mother of two beautiful spirits and married to my college sweetheart. I love reading books in the self-help genre and watching true life stories, bloopers, and somewhat clean comedy. I enjoy making healthier versions of traditional foods, and I am currently working on childhood favorites (Snickers, Twix), ice cream (butter pecan and black walnut), and others.
I believe everyone has a purpose to fulfill on earth, and it is through our experiences that our purpose is revealed. Greatness leaves trails, and you have greatness within you. Nothing external defines us, for we have already defined, justified, and glorified.
My experience with sexual abuse, from ages 5-10, does not define me, nor does my experience with an absentee father, what my ancestors endured, or how others have treated me. Within us is everything we need to transform experiences for our good.
I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Nursing and over 22 years of healthcare experience. I am a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES), an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and a Certified American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal Trainer.
I am restoring compassion, faith, hope, grace, joy, love, peace, purpose, truth, and understanding through my writing, and I live in Tillamook, Oregon with my children and husband.
