Who Am I?
I am an adventurer, entrepreneur, educator, writer, and mother, with an appreciation for life and a passion for change!
On the whole, I am a free spirit…..loving life and all the beauty it has to offer.
My life is guided by the principles of humanism, the belief in the oneness of humanity, and a mission to make a difference in every positive way that I can.
There is never a dull moment for me because there is always someone that needs a helping hand, some lesson to learn and another to teach, someone to love, and some adventure to take.
Traveling in Egypt and crawling through desert caves! Yes. Sign me up.
I’m a nomad in every sense of the word. Whether it’s going across town to check out the latest art installation or crossing the Atlantic Ocean to climb Egyptian pyramids, I simply can’t sit still.
Nerdy Girlie Tomboy Foodie Beer Geek Pub Crawler
I’m a girlie girl but I’m also a tomboy. I love all things pink, Hello Kitty, and sweet cocktails. I also love beer, shooting darts, and bowling. I can get down and dirty in the mud, even when wearing a dress. I‘m a mother who can love with tenderness, but I’m also tough and have never been afraid of a fight.
I can’t be easily put into any box. I’m a rebel who defies convention and breaks all the rules. I’m a tatted up tattoo lover and a major geek who owns a Funko POP collection. I enjoy a good Ted talk as much as I do Comic-Con. I’m a foodie, a makeup junkie, a frugalista, a bibliophile and a filmophile. I’m a crazy cat lady too. Truth is I love all the stuff that makes life rich!
Thank you for taking the time to join me on my journey of life! (◕‿◕✿)

The Walking Dead is one of the most interesting shows to ever air on television, and for so many reasons. If one can get past the gore and see the many social commentaries presented, what that viewer will experience is a psychoanalytical buffet. The post-apocalyptic world in which the characters live is one in which…

THE SEASON OF RENEWAL When the time arrives for crisp warm breezes and the opportunity to sleep with the window open, I know spring is here. I dream of tulips growing in fields, cherry blossoms hanging over my patio and pinning daffodils to my Afro. Spring makes me feel free and…
