I have always loved helping people, enjoyed cultures and languages, and wanted to find a way to combine many of my interests: writing, poetry, speaking, empowering, coaching, listening, problem solving, inspiring and overall helping people grow. I received a BA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Biblical Literature. I continued on and completed a program equivalent to a bachelors in communication disorder followed by completing my masters of health science in communication disorders in 2017. After completing my CFY in 2017-2018 I became an ASHA certified Speech Language Pathologist.
I am passionate about helping people become better communicators, but in order for that to happen they must understand their strengths and weaknesses. I am not here to point fingers, only to guide, encourage and provide resources to help you achieve your goals along the way. I have been through various trials that have taught me valuable wisdom and lessons that I hope to pass on to others.
This spring, my first book will be coming out. It is called Life Hijacked, Take It Back. In this book, I explain that we all get "hijacked" by life. Circumstances catch us by surprise and leave us feeling uncertain about life and how to get our lives back. This book is packed with information! I wrote poems for every chapter, provide personal examples and define tough concepts, as well as, ask the hard questions that need to be said in order for growth to happen. I give you an opportunity to interact with the book with reflection questions that follow a summary of each chapter. If you choose, you can Take Your Life Back!
