Best Story

I didn't learn about kindness in a book; I found it in the challenges and triumphs of real life. Simple acts of kindness that began as a way for me to lift my spirits when I needed it most have become my life mission.
I feel it deep in my soul to share my story because I know others will see parts of themselves reflected in it. Mine is a comeback story and my dream is to inspire others to create the best versions of themselves and realize
that kindness is a strength, not a weakness.

Origin Story

I loved speech class in high school, but I never expected that speaking on stage and telling my story would become my life's work. What I didn't realize then was how my story would unfold; the traumas I would endure;
everything I would overcome over the next 25 years; and the passion I'd feel to use what I'd gone through as fuel to inspire and empower others to use kindness to get the most out of life at home and at work.
