Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I live at the beach in Southern California. I am blessed to be a wife, mother of three and homemaker. I have been writing and creating art for as long as I can remember. I was first published as a teenager, thanks to a creative writing teacher believing in me. They submitted my work to a poetry publishing company. I was in awe to see my words printed in a hardcover book!
Since then, I am honored to have been published over fifteen times. Not only in America but also in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. I have been featured on Yahoo! Lifestyle, Yahoo! News United Kingdom, The Mighty, Spill Words Press, Target Style, Twitter Moments selection, Happy Cow, a poetry anthology book and more.
My creative approach includes poetry, personal essay, nonfiction narrative and multidisciplinary. I often pair my photography and painting with my writing. Published topics cover a multitude of subjects including psychology, wellness, inspiration, faith, relationships and family life.
Prior to starting a family, I had many years of experience in the field of psychology. I helped patients in a top-ranked psychiatric hospital as well as an award-winning medical care facility. My experience in the psychology field has greatly influenced my writing. Connecting with others from all walks of life over the years has been a joy.
In my spare time I enjoy supporting causes dear to my heart. I am a special education and PTA school volunteer. I am a member of the Autism Society of America. I also proudly support the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
