A little about me…

I was born with a portwine birthmark that covered the left side of my face. As a child, I was often pointed at and made fun of. My parents divorced when I was seven. I moved and changed schools multiple times throughout my childhood. At the age of thirteen, I became a caregiver to my mother who was diagnosed with cancer. At seventeen, I ventured off to college not knowing my value nor how to balance a checkbook. I was angry. I didn’t know a thing about life and somehow thought it was unfair I was thrust into the world lacking.

At twenty-one, armed with a Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice and Psychology, I escaped to Florida to hide from my demons. I thought, by working with Probationers and Parolees, that my life wouldn’t seem so bad, and I could confidently say, “nothing’s wrong with me.” Seven years later, I became homesick and returned to Virginia. It was around this time that my self-discovery journey began.

Everyone’s path is different. For me, I chose to start by processing childhood issues with a psychotherapist. There is one pivotal point that I will never forget. I recall walking into the office and stating, “I’m good.” She responded by asking, “what do you mean?” I emphatically stated again, “I’m good.” She prodded, “tell me.” At this point, I became annoyed not really knowing how to describe how I was feeling. She kept on. She continued to come at me with a line of questions. I finally loudly blurted out, “I see color.” I had been living my life in black and white.

We all have lessons to learn in life. At times, we may repeat these lessons. In fact, We Repeat What We Don’t Repair. I have, therefore, made it my mission to educate, support and inspire others.
