The Short Version...

I'm a speaker, author, coach, and entrepreneur who is dedicated to helping you build healthy relationships.


But More than that...

I'm a wife, new mom, dog mom, and domestic violence survivor who is passionate about helping others live out The Blessing, heal from abuse, and live an abundant life in Christ.

Here is Some of my Story...


I grew up with a family who loved me, and loved Jesus. But to me, God always felt abstract. That led me to walk away from my faith, and long story VERY VERY short, I ended up eloping, shocking my whole family, and found myself in the middle of an abusive relationship.

While I had isolated myself from my family, and my friends, they never gave up on me. And one day God provided the courage and opportunity for a way out.


But God...

While you can watch the video about my story here, I eventually left that relationship, and have spent the past 10+ years healing and experience the abundant peace and freedom that only Jesus can bring. 

Now, I'm married to an incredible man (Joey), we have an incredible son, and I get to help others experience the same hope, healing, and restoration as well.

No matter where you are today, there is HOPE. And you don't have to walk alone.
