She worked in Corporate America for over a decade before discovering her passion and talent for helping others.
She has extensively studied trauma and worked as a trauma therapists with adults and children.
At the onset of the pandemic, she had a child diagnosed with cancer, which created a new level of understanding and awareness around the mental health struggles that families face when there is a critical illness in the home. She founded Family Chemotherapy, a Podcast, Blog and community to provide resources for families faced with Childhood Cancer. She continues to provide services for families facing cancer, and caregivers struggling with the delicate balance of caregiving responsibilities.
After the unexpected and early death of her younger brother and becoming a caregiver to a child diagnosed with cancer, she realized the lack of support and resources for a hurting population.
She explored personally what it is to be resilient and what helps strengthen resiliency. Anyone can be resilient, with the right support and the right tools and a little bit a therapy.
