Welcome to My World!

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!

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.

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.


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.

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.
