Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I am a lifelong California girl living in a charming beach town. I have been married for thirteen years, have three amazing children, a couple of beloved pets and a plethora of plants. I have been writing and creating art since childhood. I first officially became a published author over twenty years ago. The rest, as they say, is history!
I have an educational and work background in the field of psychology. I've helped 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. I empower others through psychology and teaching a compassionate lifestyle.
My publications and features cover a multitude of subjects including poetry, psychology, wellness, vegan cooking, faith and family. I am honored to have been published over sixteen times. Not only in America, but also in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. I have been published by Yahoo! Lifestyle, Yahoo! News United Kingdom, Huffington Post/ The Mighty, Spill Words Press, Twitter Moments Selection, Happy Cow, a poetry anthology book and so much more.
My lifestyle blog has been thriving since 2019. What started out as a way to share about my various interests turned into a much larger lifestyle brand platform. In 2021 I transitioned from being a long-time vegetarian to a vegan. My lifestyle brand then became streamlined into sharing about simple, natural, cruelty-free living. I love connecting others to a more natural and compassionate way of living.
I enjoy taking a multidisciplinary approach to my work. Using multiple mediums to express my art is a passion of mine. My photography can often be 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 style aesthetic was featured by Target Style, Besame Cosmetics and Neesees Dress Boutique, among others.
When I am not creating, I am found supporting causes dear to my heart. As an animal and nature lover, I support the Dolphin Project and Sea Shepherd. As a mother of a child with autism, I am a passionate advocate for individuals with disabilities. I am a supporting member of the Autism Society of America. I am an elected community council official for my local school district. Within the council, I hold an elected Officer position. I have also volunteered for many years at local schools- in both general education and special education classrooms. Additionally, I've had the pleasure of being a special education class Room Mom and PTA class delegate.
I am blessed with wonderful readers from all around the world. Feel free to email me using the secure contact form on this site. You are invited to subscribe to my blog and join me on social media. Thank you again for taking the time to get to know more about me.
