About Me

In 2001 I lost my father to random crime, wrote a book, and began to speak publicly on recovery from violence.

In 2014, I was attacked, in a drug related, domestic incident. I was hit with a hammer, doused in petrol and set alight. Sustaining burns to 35% of my body, I spent 2 years recovering from this.

My business skills include an MBA, and extensive travel in Africa and the Middle East, teaching young women business skills. I'm am now in Canada.

I run successful workshops, on 'Authenticity' and 'Vulnerability is your greatest strength' and assist companies with the impact of violence on work productivity, and engage employees to thrive in life.

I promote gay rights and encourage women to live authentically, I encourage education as the first step for women to take back their power.

My Vision

I intend to stop the cycle of violence! I know how to do this, I can teach the skills. Let's thrive!


I'm looking for public speaking opportunities and media coverage of my story.
