​​You know those lessons that keep showing up in your life? The biggest ones for me have involved learning to stand in my own power and speak my truth. Since childhood, throughout a career in education, and now as I step into the world of Animal Welfare, writing has been a steadfast friend, helping me to navigate those lessons, even when I pushed it to the side. Putting pen to paper and venturing into non-traditional publishing have had the fabulous and unexpected side-effects of bravery, confidence, and the realization that life is way better when you live it as yourself, rather than as someone you think others want you to be.​​
