A Heartfelt, Inspirational True Story About

Perseverance & Triumph

The questions I never stop asking are “How do I keep my dreams alive? What am I capable of? What can I continue to do? And if I can’t, what else might I be able to do so I can keep pursuing my dreams?”

Being a Light


I’m discovering that the most important way I can continue to be a light is to offer my story so that you are inspired to bring to light and share your story.

Following Your Dreams

I keep my dreams alive by first believing in them absolutely and without question, and then I dare myself to fulfill them, even if I don’t know how I’ll do it. I throw my passion, blood, sweat, tears, and heart into them relentlessly and get lost in their magic until they’re realized.
