Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I live at the beach in sunny Southern California. I am blessed to be married for fourteen years with three wonderful children. My faith and loved ones are my first priority. My creative work is what I consider a passion project. I first officially became a published author when I was eighteen years old. I remember feeling in awe to see my writing printed in a beautiful book. The rest, as they say, is history!
Prior to starting a family, I had many years of experience in the psychology field. This included helping patients at a top-ranked psychiatric hospital, as well as a long-term medical care facility. Helping those with profound physical and mental health needs has greatly influenced my work.
My publications and features cover a multitude of subjects including poetry, psychology, philosophy, faith, family and wellness. I am honored to have been published over eighteen 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, Happy Cow, a poetry anthology and more.
I enjoy taking a multidisciplinary approach to my work. My photography is often found accompanying my publications. I enjoy incorporating my painting into my creative works also. My original painting was featured at the Gallery at The Merc in California. My modest style compilations have been featured on Target Style, Besame Cosmetics and Neesees Dress Boutique.
When I am not creating, I am found supporting causes dear to my heart. I support Sea Shepherd International, the Dolphin Project, the Lions, Tigers and Bears Sanctuary and the Autism Society of America. I've volunteered for years at local schools. I have served as a special education class Room Mom, PTA class delegate, special event volunteer and field trip chaperone. I am currently an elected school councilwoman helping underprivileged children.
I feel blessed by every reader and supporter of my creative work. Thank you! If you ever have any questions, email me using the secure contact form on this site. You're also invited to join me on social media. Thank you for your support!
