Some say I’m a survivor, other’s call me a warrior, but I consider myself lucky to have the grit needed in order to be resilient so I could live long enough to discover what was really keeping me from true happiness in my life.

On the outside I looked like someone that had it all - - the perfect family, big house, fancy car, and successful career. But on the inside, I felt broken and questioned if I’d ever be enough.

My life was filled with some of the most outrageous experience and crazy sh*t, some by circumstance and some by choice, that when shared leaves most people with their jaws hanging open.

Then the unthinkable happened and changed my life forever.

My kids were victims of a hate crime and mass shooting.  I was the first civilian on the scene and life as I knew it would never be the same.  My children survived, but I soon spiraled out of control. I left a trail of destruction along the way and lost everything, including my dignity.

When taking a bottle of pills didn’t kill me, I’d prayed that my abusive partner would. But something short of a miracle happened and instead of losing total consciousness when he was strangling me, someone appeared at me door and my live was spared.  It was then I decided I could not live or die like this and something had to change.  I singlehandedly got clean and sober and never snorted another line of meth again.

I tried therapy and that just left me sad and hurt.  I read every personal development and self-help book I could get my hands on.  I bought the Big Book used in Alcoholics Anonymous and sponsored myself.  I got radically honest with myself and life began to change.  Once again, on the outside, I looked like I had it all.  I shattered the glass ceiling and managed hundreds of people.  I drove fancy cars and took lavish vacations.  I even got remarried.

The bursts of happiness and comfort never lasted.  It wasn’t long until I realized I’d married the same man with a different face, and instead of beating me, he emotionally abused me and gaslighted me until I had lost the ability to dream.  Once again, I wanted to die.  Then it happened.  I had moved 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles to Orlando and a new friend suggested I join her at a weekend coaching intensive.

At first, I wasn’t interested.  But after months of suggesting that I would find what I was looking for, I agreed.  That was the best decision I could have made.  In less than 24 hours I had experienced a breakthrough and in 48, I had transformed.  Nobody believed it.  I mean nobody.  Not the lead coach, the licensed therapists, not the other participants.  My best friend had been going for 15 years and had yet to experience anything like what I was explaining.


On Sunday night I knew that a dream I once had at 17 when I first found myself homeless, was alive and well.  I needed to help as many people as I could end a bit of suffering regardless of what it took.  I am dedicated to making the world a better place through emotional leadership and radical responsibility.
