She understands what it’s like to be a single mom of two children, uncertain of the future, lose people and relationships to illness and addiction, yet establish a career in academia by overcoming limiting mindsets and anxiety, because she’s lived it. Through her years of work with healthcare professionals and personal development, she’s moved forward to create her own path towards wellness. Her life isn’t perfect, but her strategies make maintaining peace much easier and she would love to share them with you.
