I am a Minister, Motivational Speaker, and Author, whose message is all about overcoming and how we can all live our best lives now.
Often times I felt really different. As a kid, I was a loner. At the tender age of 9, I was responsible for myself in many ways, taking care of many of my own basic needs and my brothers as well. At 10, I was the “woman of the house” because my mother divorced my father and moved to another country. Because of these things and many others, I knew a lot of people but never really became too close with anyone. It perfectly mirrored my family life growing up. I also seemed to always be unpopular. Meaning, I never seemed to be “on trend.” It’s like my life has been a series of opposite days. Whether it was being the voice of reason and caregiver in my home starting from the age of 9, to becoming a mother of my first child at 15 years old, I was always in a whole other section of life than my peers. There have been great depths, darkness, and sometimes despair. Some of the things I’ve gone through are:
• Many years as a single mother of 2, working multiple jobs, studying, & chasing my dream of being an entertainer.
• The death of my son after a very difficult pregnancy and labor that almost cost me my life.
• A drug habit that I later kicked with the help of the 12 step program.
• Marriage to a physically abusive man.
• Becoming a divorcee in my early twenties.
• Alcohol abuse.
• Issues with self-acceptance, sexuality.
Now, I am still totally opposite than my peers. They are just starting their marriages and family lives. My kids, Andrea and Christian, are grown and no longer live with us. I’m already an empty nester!!!!
I am also professionally satisfied, in love with my life’s expression, happily married to my soulmate and best friend Tony, and continuing to expand and grow!!
I always sensed something greater. A greater idea of myself, an expectation of a greater experience I could have. A very strong belief in something more. As a young girl, I began to seek answers to life’s big questions. This seeking has led me to a number of groups, beliefs, and religions. Some of them include; Catholicism, Jehovah Witnesses, Buddhism, Christianity, Seventh Day Adventists, Baptists, Hinduism, New Thought, and Science of Mind. I respect all people and their faiths. I truly believe that all paths lead to one. I love God, believe in Jesus, and practice affirmative prayer. My studies continue in both Science of Mind and Christian philosophies. My focus is on relationship with the Divine. Religion, not so much.
This includes the practice of philanthropy for me. I delight in business that creates win win situations for all involved. I believe in giving back to people, communities, and the environment while generating profit.
Overcome. Live Your Best Life Now.
Some examples of this in my life are:
• Going from abusive, jealous, unreliable relationships to great love, friendship, and support.
• Experiencing my childhood dream of modeling in my late twenties despite my 5’4 frame, and age.
• Creating and sustaining multiple entertainment careers.
• Going from food stamps/working multiple jobs to survive, to being an unionized working actress/entrepreneur, that regularly gives to others.
• Releasing the past.
No matter where, what, or how we are at our starting point, what we dream of, we can achieve. I provide insights, tips, and methods for those who long for something more in their lives and for those who believe the same but are looking for someone who sees them and understands.
As a cheerleader of the human spirit, I am focused on love, growth, and joy for all. As a writer and a speaker, I focus on content that is uplifting and empowering while being practical and transformative! I speak honestly about my experiences and provide solutions that I have personally experienced as effective. One on one, intimate groups, and large masses, have all been a joy to work with.
I love life and am aimed at living life to the fullest. I love travel, fitness, thrills, nature, healthy eating, and the continued study of spiritual concepts aimed at enlightenment. I enjoy pushing my physical and mental boundaries along with my limits by taking on physical challenges, learning new things, and traveling to exotic locations.
