Writer. Speaker. Warrior.

I have a rebellious nature and spend a lot of my time testing the boundaries. I am often accused of having no filter…I call it being real.

I am lucky to be married to an incredible guy. His conservative, analytical temperament brings balance to my gypsy soul. I would pack up an RV and travel the country in a heartbeat! We have four rambunctious children, and I am trying my hand at being a stay-at-home mom for the first time ever… it is scary, to say the least.

Over the past few years we have managed to simplify our lives to do more “living in the moment.” This has afforded me more opportunities to lean in. Lean in to my family, neighbors, friends, strangers’ paths I cross. I am always looking for an opportunity to sit with people and a piping hot latte and let them be seen, looking sincerely in their eyes as they are speaking, so they know they are being heard.



When not chasing my children, I can often be found curled up outside with a good book soaking up the sun. If I can teach my children to love themselves, love Jesus, and love their neighbors, I will be content.

I am always up for an adventure and am most comfortable flying by the seat of my pants!
