About Me

As a World Pulse Encourager Mentor, I am passionate about the power of owning our stories, and the healing brought by encouragement filled with empathy.

" When each woman shows up and does her BRAVE thing, she actually wins a thousand other battles because she makes a thousand other women brave." - Ann Voskamp

" Empathy is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message that you are not alone." - Brene Brown

"If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive." -Brene Brown

"Your journey is not the same as mine, and my journey is not yours. But if you meet me on a certain path, may we encourage each other" - Unknown
