My life experience in these brief 29 years have taught me…how much more there is to learn! Yet, I’ve also learned lessons through my beautiful detour that have inspired others with my message of hope, gratitude, and resilience. Through my show, my art and my story, I hope to shed light on the true power of the human spirit – the strength that is within all of us, and the fierce, determined passion we are capable in accessing when we decide to live our best lives.
