Welcome to my website!

I'm excited to invite you into the painful, heartwrenching dark beautiful liberating world of grief and overcoming PTSD and victimhood. My journey has not been typical and oftentimes not pretty. But the more I learn the more I experience glorious beauty rising from the ashes of the tragedy that shaped my life. Join me as I prepare to publish my book, Angel in Arlington. My mission is to help others embrace unlikely courage themselves, battle skeletons in their closets and find freedom, peace, and true happiness.
