If you listened to the two podcasts linked below and on the main page you understand, due to life threatening congenital autoimmune deficiency and heart complications, I have walked the walk I talk. Throughout my life I had to advocate for myself, acknowledge wounds, process the lessons, and let go of the unhealthy to heal my mind, heart, body, and spirit to integrate a healthier way of existing so to find my “Truth” and embrace my Authentic Self. [ Podcast linked below]
I believe this is a continual process for me, and I will continue to challenge myself to grow until my last breath.
From birth, I have faced and walked through adverse circumstances that lead me to a diagnosis of death at age fifteen, and a prognosis that I would never live past the age of twenty. I did not succumb to the belief set forth by doctors, and at twenty chose to change my outcome even if it meant: “To live to live, or live to die.”
My first step out of the hospital and into the world connected me directly with the entertainment and sports industries. I have been interacting with professionals within the entertainment, sports, news, and political industries for 30 years.
Additionally, through my pursuit of self-actualization I have found a passion for advocating for others. I have accomplished this by writing three books, speaking for RAINN, developing and directing a video for Vagina Monologues, and writing articles to help uplift others and support special causes.
Furthermore, through my educational quest I have helped and interacted with at risk youth, adults with dual diagnosis [mental illness], elders with Dementia/Alzheimer, Grief and Family support, and developed programs for caregivers within an organizational environment. Accomplished over the past 10 years.
