Let’s Go a Little Deeper
I PASSIONATELY WRITE AND SHARE MY STORIES FOR THE HEALING AND LIBERATION OF WOMEN.
For as long as I can remember, writing and telling my stories has been the way through which I find my personal healing and sense of wholeness.
I've always been a writer, but it wasn't until my younger brother died in a sudden and traumatic accident several years ago, while I was also in a long term, abusive relationship, that I began to truly rely on my ability to write and share my stories to navigate the grief and trauma I was experiencing.
If there's anything I've learned in my 8 years of writing on and working with women on the modern experiences and issues that we face, it's that every woman has a story.
And usually lots of them.
Time and time again I’ve witnessed the force for change that occurs when women share their stories with one another.
Whether that force for change is supporting them in healing old wounds, processing residual trauma, or scripting a new narrative for themselves — writing and storytelling does all this and more.
My personal life experiences and the experiences I witness women facing in the world today are what most inform my writing, as I intimately unpack how those experiences have effected myself and the women I know.
On a Personal Note
I'm a resilient, self-proclaimed bitch, and dog mother with an intense mix of a fighting spirit, with a deep seated sense of responsibility and purposefulness — also, I think poop jokes are the funniest things ever.
Under my warrior-like armor, I have an ooey gooey center that’s made of nothing but the utmost tender, soft love for all.
But I don't do well with being crossed — just an FYI.
Frida Kahlo and Anaïs Nin are my greatest muses.
In my free time, I’m probably writing like a mad woman, studying with one of my mentors, causing mischief with girlfriends, traveling the world, reading inspiring literature, trying to share butterfly kisses with my dog child, making herbal remedies, car camping in the desert, soaking in some hot springs, or relishing in a delicious meal and wine.
A Snapshot of My Story
From photography major to masseuse; jewelry maker to natural health product sales associate; through many years of women’s leadership trainings, mystery school initiations, self-study, and some really spectacular mentors at my back teaching me every step of the way, I found my way back to my passion and “dream job”: writing in the name of women keeping it totally fucking real.
I’m a college art school drop out, certified massage therapist, women’s leadership graduate and trainee, and wouldn’t change a single step of my journey that’s brought me to where I am today.
With the desire to always be learning and growing, I’m a woman in process who is all heart, dedication, with a tremendous commitment to serve.
I'm a truth-seeker and truth-teller at all costs, no matter how gritty or uncomfortable that can be sometimes, and transmute those truth’s into experience-based writing and support for women worldwide.
Merging the sacred and the profane is truly the name of my game — there’s nothing too dark or too scary for me, which is part of where I'm able to show up so fully: because I embrace and celebrate the full spectrum of our humanity so completely,
Whether it’s shame-busting, trauma-processing, or repression-breaking, I’m here to walk it all out, every step of the way with how I express myself and share with the world — digging into the trenches of righteous rage, dipping into the well of grief, and rising all the way up to the greatest joy and spell-binding ecstasy.
