HELLO! I am so glad you are here...I mean, there...you know, at your computer, smart phone, ipad...whatever technology tool you are using - I am grateful you found me! I am an Author, Motivational Speaker & Mama of 3 (in no particular order), navigating this beautiful, crazy, wonderful thing called life.
Over 23 years ago, I was blessed to be a Mama for the first time, then blessed a total of 3 times through the decades (my goodness that word makes me feel…wise). I must say Mamahood is an adventure in itself, but when the curveball of Autism is thrown into the mix, you find life gets a little flipped. I had to delve into the world of biochemistry, nutrition, therapies, special education, alternative medicines, and more!
The awareness of Autism has grown in the world, along with the number of families who are dealing with the pain, mystery, finances, and exhaustion of this epidemic. The journey is for the strong of heart, love, understanding and faith wrapped up in Teflon armor; these remarkable participants of autism do not volunteer for this journey, but are drafted into the depths of an altered path of unknown certainties and enormous barriers....it is no wonder that the Autism Community is made of Warrior parents and children that strive for answers, help, treatments, acceptance, hope, and compassion.
- FIRST thing you need to do is look past the LABEL and start addressing the SYMPTOMS.
- SECOND thing...SEE the CHILD not the CHALLENGES!
I am a member of this community and have nurtured our child, family and myself through heartache, loss, joy, hope and enlightenment. Along the way I have had to wear different "Hats" in numerous fields of interest to attain goals, treatments and remedies including hbot, stem cells therapy & essential oils, all of which I have accumulated and hang on my Autism HatRack.
I have written a book, blog for the Dallas Morning News, am a Motivational Speaker, support a community of essential oilersand I advocate for our "extra needs" community everyday. I am a Parent Professional and consult with parents to help identify the next steps in their journey with themselves and their loved ones.
