I am a Maine-based Writer and Poet. My work spans genres and spaces: poetry, nonprofits, and health & wellness of spirit and soul. I have more than a decade of experience in professional writing, including social media, content writing, and graphic design. I am the author of Secrets: A Story of Addiction, Grief & Healing, and A Magical Adventure into the Forest. I have a BS degree from the University of Maine. My concentrations of studies included: Education, English, Creative Writing, and Library Science. I have studied, practiced, and believe in the power of self-healing using mindfulness, energy, and the natural elements to achieve mental and emotional wellness. I am the mother who has lost a daughter to overdose, but I am also the mother of three living children and a grandmother of eleven beautiful souls. Loss need not define us, but rather what we do with our lives following tragic loss and grief.
