Thank you for coming here to learn more about me. I live in coastal California with my wonderful husband, three amazing children, several sweet 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!
My publications and features cover a multitude of subjects including poetry, psychology, philosophy, relationships, disabilities, special needs parenting, cooking and lifestyle.
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 run a lifestyle blog here on this site. I am blessed with thousands of loyal readers. I blog about my lifestyle, family, homemaking, psychology, financial freedom, creativity, natural living and being vegan.
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 writing publications. At times, I pair my paintings along with my writing as well. My original painting was featured at the Gallery at The Merc in California. My content creation about style led me to be selected as a Besame Girl for Besame Cosmetics. I was also chosen to showcase Neesees Dress Boutique.
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, Sea Shepherd and Helen Woodward Animal Center.
As a mother of a child with autism, I am a passionate advocate for compassion and acceptance of all individuals with autism. I am a supporting member of the Autism Society of America. I am a member of the Parent Teacher Organization as well as the Special Education Parent Partner Panel. I have volunteered for the over six years at local preschools and elementary schools. I have volunteered in both general education and special education classrooms.
My other creative pursuits include vegan cooking, vegan 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.
