Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I live in coastal Southern California with my husband, three children, silly pup, cuddly cat and a plethora of plants. I am passionate about faith, family and creating. I have been a published author for over twenty years.
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.
Published topics cover a multitude of subjects including psychology, philosophy, relationships, autism, special needs parenting, inspiration, financial freedom, homemaking, natural wellness, cooking and style.
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.
Prior to starting a family, I had many years of experience in the medical 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 writing.
When I am not writing in my spare time, I am found supporting causes dear to my heart. As an animal lover, I support the Dolphin Project and the Helen Woodward Animal Center. As a mother of a child with disabilities, I am a supporting member of the Autism Society of America. I am an active volunteer at my children's schools, including special education.
My other creative pursuits include cooking, baking, crafting, scrapbooking, creating natural home and beauty products, gardening, decorating and thrifting for vintage treasures.
