As a daycare owner for 13 years and a mother it was natural to put my needs last. One day I was working alone at the daycare, I became dizzy and I almost down the stairs. That experience in 2009 was one of my wake up calls to better self-care. We are responsible for our physical and mental health. We are responsible for our lives. Now I teach parents, especially single moms how to put themselves first and parent healthy without guilt. I empower women to know and see their worth, become bold, confident and to love themselves. I want women to know that they MATTER, they're WORTH IT, and you that they GOT WHAT IT TAKES to create that healthy balance lifestyle. Maya Angelou says, “If you are always trying to be normal you would never know how amazing you are.” So, I enable women to challenge themselves, and maximize their awesomeness. In addition, I enable women to know that their determination to overcome circumstances tells their children that they should never let anyone or anything make them quit and having their best life (page 25 of my book #Cherish Your Mistakes ~ There is Hope).
