“The meaningful question is never what we did yesterday, but what we have learned from it and are doing today ….. No one can help with anything like someone who has been through the pain themselves.” – A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson
Mom, Nature Mentor, Best-Selling Author, Blogger, Writer, Photographer, and Inspirational Speaker
I am a ninja improvisor and I do it in a way that makes it seem as if I knew what I was doing all along. Plus, I make it FUN if the occasion calls for it. I have a crazy, insane eye for detail. These two qualities together make for some interesting times!
My number one main and most important “job” is ensuring that I “raise” two beings who live life from a place of loving-kindness, who retain peace and joy as they age and are grounded in the knowing of their given talents so as to share those talents for the benefit of others.
I’m a writer, a poet, and nature lover and am on a journey full of new learning, a journey with fresh eyes, an open heart, and a thirst for discovery … and I share all of this in my writings.
I am a single parent to 10 year old Thomas and 14 year old Lillian. Lillian has a chromosome abnormality simply called 18p-. This means she is missing the short arm of chromosome #18. She is free spirit with a sparkling smile with eyes to match and she has much to teach us. I’m deeply grateful and blessed that I get to be her Mom.
Her younger brother, Thomas, is an amazing and loving helper! He is a wise old soul with a refreshing intelligence. He and his sweet spirit are a joy to be around. Although Thomas has not been officially diagnosed, he struggles with sensory processing issues.
I openly share my life and Team TLC’s family life through writing my first book, “D iz for Different – One Woman’s Journey to Acceptance”, writing on this blog, The Team TLC blog, and facebook. I’m currently writing my second book, tentatively titled, “Walk With Me – One Family’s Journey to Mindful Living”.
Why do I write and what do I write about?
What do I “do”?
It’s not in my nature to tell people they are doing something right or wrong, or to teach them how they should or shouldn’t be doing something. Nor, do I dish out tough love. That has never been in sync with my heart.
How can I help you?

Please feel free to take your eyes and heart on a walk through my writings. Grab some tea or coffee, get comfy, get quiet, and enjoy yourself. May something you read lift you and inspire an internal shift should this be what you are seeking. xoxo
“Until we understand what is within, we can’t understand what is without.” – Anita Moorjani
I do not claim to know the One Way, or One Size fits all approach to living a joyful, peaceful life. I’m not trying to convince anyone of anything. I am to work with and help those whose heart urges them to connect with me and to learn more.
I am to hold a nurturing space for those who feel moved by what I share so they can discover what it means to love oneself and to awaken who they truly are within …… magnificence and LOVE.
