I write what I’m passionate about. I recently finished my young adult novel, First Break, a coming of age story about a young girl who finally reaches college only to find herself in the vortex of a mental break. I have written over forty articles for various newspapers, magazines, and books on topics that matter to me. Improving my craft tops my list of goals. I have been building on my BA in English Literature from UCLA with classes, avid reading, conferences, and my critique group. Samples of published articles can be found here in Published Articles.

In November of 2010, I realized I was obese. As a writer, I thought I was observant, but somehow I had completely missed how large I had become. I started a plan, and with the help of a personal health coach, I dropped 85 pounds in six months. I’ve kept that off and feel healthier than I’ve ever been. My whole life transformed.
This was such a meaningful experience for me, I decided to “pay it forward” and become a health coach to help others. To date, I have helped over 50 people drop more than 2,000 pounds and have watched their lives transform in many different ways.
With a background as an elementary school teacher and as a current instructor for adults who have children struggling with mental illness (NAMI Basics), I have discovered speaking is a way to help others along their journeys.
I speak on inspirational topics, health and wellness topics, weight loss, and writing topics. I love practicing with my fellow Toastmasters.
Speaking engagements are available on request.
