What I Specialize In



Last year, after the birth of my son, Malakai, I suffered a severe case of postpartum depression and anxiety.  Much of what is aiding in my recovery is a new-found passion for writing.  I whet my appetite with a 7-Day Writing Challenge.  Coupled with a 21-Day Writing Challenge, and some coaching, I completed my memoir in 21-days.  I love the cathartic nature of writing and invite you to learn more about my book.


For me, missions is more than a passion, it’s a calling; and there’s nothing more rewarding.  I remember my first mission to Kampala, Uganda.  It made me feel as if I’ve never lived, never been so close to heaven.  In that moment, the frivolity of my life was brought into perspective and I realized that I needed my sisters and brothers of Uganda much more than they needed me.  Consider taking the journey with me.

Certified Health Coach

When I decided to take my health seriously, I knew I needed a strategy.  The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) is the world's largest nutrition school. IIN not only fueled my passion around health, wellness, and helping others, but also helped me turn my passion into a hobby that I love.  If you’re ready to take your health seriously and need some support, I would love to be your coach.

"For all intents and purposes, I appear to have it all together, at least on the outside. But when you begin to peer beyond how I look...how I sound...and my movement...a duality of sorts comes to light."
