Hello and welcome!  I'm glad you're here. 

I'm on a mission to empower individuals to show up for life.  To live big.  Live with courage.  And to take the leap to go after their dreams.  But here's the thing ... you don't have to do it alone.  In fact, we need one another and we can do so much more when we stand together.   

A Little Bit About Me

Ever since I can remember I have used writing as a tool to unravel the contents of my heart.  The pages of my notebook are my sacred space to open up into.  When I was younger I would tuck my journal far under my mattress so my brothers couldn't find it.  I would have been devastated if they knew I had a crush on David and that when I asked him out he said no.  Luckily for me they never discovered it.  

In 2005 I dipped my toe into blogging.  I thought no one was reading and took a vulnerable leap by posting my very first video online.  Little did I know my older brother would discover me and share it with my entire family.  Having him find me online was a turning point.  No longer was my shy introverted self hiding in the background.  I was now front and center.  My family began to see me, really see me for who I am and in turn our connection grew stronger.  I have been blogging ever since and haven't looked back.

Here I Stand Today

I take risk's.  I reach for the stars.  I fall down.  I love with my heart wide open.  I don't always know where I'm going, but I always know that I have to try.  I put one foot in front of the other and figure it out along the way.  

I am a writer sharing the truth of my story through words on the page.
I am a photographer capturing the every day moments that bring me joy.  A feather found.  A beautiful sky.  My feet after running.
I encourage individuals to share their heart through handwritten notes that they send through the mail
I am a on a mission to inspire individuals to show up to life and to know they don't have to do it alone. 

If you are looking for me you will most likely find me outside on my bicycle or sitting on my front porch reading.  I thrive in the sunshine and fresh air nudges me to keep on moving forward.  I love yoga, meditation, making vision boards, and gathering with others.  I invite you to come on over for a cup of tea or a spontaneous dance party.

most altering moments in my life {so far}

Life is what you make of it.  It can be a grand adventure or nothing at all.  I choose to make it an adventure.  I choose to take leaps.  I choose to stretch myself farther than I ever thought I could go.  I choose to show up each and every day.  You only get one chance ... live it wildly!

I invite you to take a listen to hear a little bit more about my story as I chat with Elizabeth Duvivier on her podcast Morning on the Dock.  Together we chat about the Love Notes Project, writing, running, and even navigating grief after losing my mom.
