First off I am me, raw , honest and unapologetic in that.
It was taken me years to embrace ALL of me. To look at the things I don’t like and really see them and understand them. To look at the things I love about myself and love those parts of me hard.
I was once told ” you can’t dim you light to make some one else shine brighter” It’s a piece of wisdom I have carried with me and keep coming back to. In those moments that I wonder if I am enough. In those moments where I start to sacrifice myself.
Perhaps the biggest part of me is Mom. I have wanted to be a mom as long as I can remember. I have 3 little people, the most amazing little humans that call me mom. They are my reason WHY, even when I don’t know how.
I am a doula and birth nerd. Connecting with others on their journey in welcoming little ones into the world is something that fills my soul.
I am someone who knows cancer all to well. From being diagnosed at 14 with osteosarcoma (bone cancer), metastasizing to my lung at 16, to most recently on Sept 2017 and 33 finding out I had breast cancer.
I am a disabled women. I get up every morning and put on my prosthetic (when I can) and navigate a world that isn’t always inclusive.
I’m a writer (this is weird for me to say) Ive been writing in my head since I was 5, now I’m writing more for the world to see.
