Believing that life isn’t about perfection, I help others truly build a life that revolves around embracing the ish! Whether it is being an okayish mom, eating paleoish or even just embracing life when the ish hits the fan.
I help others to see through a little humor and a whole lot of sass that it doesn’t have to be that serious and you don’t have to live up to anyone’s standards but your own! I empower other women to look around and be the person THEY want to be and to grow along the way.
I am a mom of 4 and a firefighter wife. I have been a step mother since my now grown step-son was 5 years old. I am a boy mom, a girl mom, an adoptive mom, and a rare disorder mom. I spend my spare time supporting and advocating for adoption, and sitting on boards for local non profits. I am a network marketing badass and mentor. Striving every day to help others live their version of the best life and seeing that through all that life throws at you - you can still claim and live the live you want.
I was raised by 2 traditional entrepreneurs and have seen hard work and know the kind of dedication we all need to succeed. When I was only 18 months old, my mom fled an abusive marriage and together we started over until I found myself in a Brady Bunch style family at almost 3 years old. I was raised in a family where I quickly learned that blood and DNA do not make a family and believes strongly that is why when the time came, I said “Yes” easily to adopting my sweet daughter from China in 2016.
When I was 19, she watched her parents lay both of my big brothers to rest in 2003 and 2004. Both of my brothers are a driving force to why I write and why I want to impact others. Making big promises to them that I will always help others and I will never give up on my goals and dreams. I believe that all things should begin and end with kindness and that we should never shrink to fit in anyone’s box.
I believe this to be one of my biggest life missions - to show the world kindness and to show other women and business owners what is possible.
