    It's exciting to have you here and to learn a bit about you. We all get a little more empowered when more voices join the choir! Please feel free to share your thoughts, stories and encouragement. Hopefully you enjoy becoming a part of this global community.

    Acting as a positive resource and example to young women is a wonderful and powerful thing. Thanks for being there for so many girls over the years. That's a big job. I look forward to seeing more of you online and hearing more of your voice.

    Your journey definitely sounds like an interesting, empowered and empowering one! I look forward to reading more about your work, personal journey, and your impact and resources in your community!

    One of your expertise's is Meditation- that is persona expertise or do you facilitate meditation with others? Meditation is something that I have aspired to work on. I find myself "too busy" to take time to do it. But I think that that is just an excuse. I definitely commend you on making that an expertise in your life! If you have any advise on techniques that might be easy for a beginner it would be much appreciated!

    Again, welcome!

    Much Peace,
