Faith

My faith is my foundation. For the past 25 years, I've tried to love God with all I amI've served Him in many ways including a mission’s trip to India that changed my life forever. 

Family

My husband and I deeply love each other, but we faced untreated trauma and mental illness. Perfectionism and neglecting myself burnt me out. Therapy saved me and gave me a passion for helping others.
