Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I am blessed to be married for fifteen years, mom of three wonderful children and two beloved rescue cats. I've always loved creating and have been involved in the arts since I was a young girl. I first officially became a published author when I was eighteen years old. I was in awe to see my writing published in a beautiful hardcover book!
Prior to starting a family, I helped patients with disabilities and life challenges in the psychology field. When I retired from the psychology field to raise my growing family, I started connecting with my creativity more and more. I discovered I could combine my love of creating with my passion for helping others.
I write with my strong faith in God as the inspiration for everything I create. It has been an amazing journey. I love encouraging others on the topics of faith, family, home and simple, slow living. Please join me on my blog for more inspiration.
My traditionally published work covers a multitude of subjects including inspiration, lifestyle and family. I am honored to have been published over twenty times. Not only in America, but also in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. I have been published by Yahoo! Lifestyle, Yahoo! News United Kingdom, The Mighty Site, Spill Words Press, Twitter Moments Selection, Newsbreak, a poetry anthology book and more.
My photography is often published alongside my writing. My original painting was featured at The Gallery At The Merc. My photography and paintings are inspired by the beauty of God's creation. My modest, vintage-inspired style has been featured online by Target Style, Neesees Boutique, Mikarose Clothing and more.
When I am not creating, I am found supporting causes dear to my heart. I have been actively volunteering at local schools for over eight years. I have served for many years as an elected school council member, on PTA and PTO, and on a Parent Partner Special Education panel. I am also a long-time supporting member of the Autism Society. I feel blessed by every reader and supporter of my creative work. If you would like reach out to me, please email me using the secure contact form on this site. You are also invited to join me on social media. Thank you for your support!
