Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I live in coastal Southern California with my husband and three wonderful children. I am passionate about faith, family and creating. 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!
My publications and features cover a multitude of subjects including poetry, psychology, philosophy, relationships, special needs parenting, disabilities, natural living, plant-based cooking and style.
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, Twitter Moments Selection, Happy Cow, Target Style, a poetry anthology book and so much more. Since 2019, I have also run a lifestyle blog on this site. I am blessed with thousands of loyal readers.
I enjoy taking a multidisciplinary approach to my work. My photography can be found accompanying my writing publications. At times, I pair my paintings along with my work as well. My original painting was featured at the Gallery at The Merc in California.
My writing about timeless style led me to be selected as a Besame Girl by acclaimed vintage cosmetics company, Besame Cosmetics. The modest Christian clothing company, Neesees Dress Boutique, also chose me to represent their brand.
When I am not creating, I am found supporting causes dear to my heart. As an animal lover, I support the Dolphin Project, Sea Shepherd and Helen Woodward Animal Center. As a mother of a child with disabilities, I am a supporting member of the Autism Society of America. I have volunteered for the past six years at local preschools and elementary schools. I have volunteered in both general education and special education classrooms.
My other creative pursuits include cooking, baking, crafting, scrapbooking, creating natural home and beauty products, gardening, decorating and thrifting for vintage treasures.
Prior to starting a family, I had many years of experience in the counseling and 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.
