My "voice" has been stifled for a large portion of my life and now, I am being asked to express it.  I find myself chuckle at the thought of someone wanting to hear my thoughts, feelings and ideas.  I was raised in the strict household of "children are to be seen and not heard," even still in my adult years my parental influence does not seek my voice and expression of it.  My self work has been one of finding "my voice" without repercussion for expressing it and knowing it is ok to do so. 

My journey has been long with many twists and turns along life's road.  I know deep within my heart, life experiences have molded me into the woman I am today.

My lessons I now share with others to empower and inspire.  My hope is that my voice inspires self-love within those lives I am blessed to touch, holding the space for them to reclaim their lives, truth and stand in their power.
