I have been given gifts of life experiences that offer me the ability to connect with a vast audience. I am a mother to a beautiful daughter that exposes me to brilliant communities. I am a daughter to a mother in recovery. I am family to members of the LBGTQ+ community. I am a combat veteran and woman from technology. I have been formally diagnosed with PTSD. I am a divorcee, wife, fitness fanatic, and radical empath who hopes to change the world one to many.
I am a Chief Story Teller / co-creator of PTSD: People, Trauma, and Stress Discussed: an unfiltered truth, a successful podcast (2018), as well as co-host of the She Built This podcast. As a combat vet and woman from technology, working in a leadership capacity for Apple, HPE, IBM, I have now launched my own company which serves organizations by fostering the development of effective communication and stress-relief strategies through Stress Ed programs to help people be better prepared at work and home. I don’t believe people or organizations should be defined by their life stressors, past and present, and hopes to offer advocacy, empowerment, and confidence to those that need it in order to reach maximum potential.
I am the voice of necessary change, a cheerleader for the underdog, and speaker about all things that are the elephant in the room.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
