My Story

I love that over the last 10 years while running a local flood damage company with my husband, (we’ve been in business for 18 years), we’ve been recognized with 20 awards. You may be thinking big deal! This has really helped us with third party endorsements that have been FREE opportunities for us and our business! 

They hear about our accolades and ask us for an interview. We are a small, family-owned business so this really helps get the word out about us. We feel so blessed that these complimentary opportunities arise for our company. 

A few months ago, our local community credit union asked me for an interview. They run a series of ‘Our Story” for their social media outlets. 

I said yes, although I wanted to ask if we could do it in a few months after I released some weight I have recently put on. I then realized that the interview needed to take place now whether I was thin or chunky. This is my outward appearance and its ok. I know my heart is filled with kindness and beauty so I’ll be grateful for that right now and do the interview. 

I am so grateful and honored for all of the awesome experiences we’ve had over the years!

I am an (award winning) womanpreneur, artist, speaker, empowerment leader and knowledge seeker. I share my stories of adversity with fear, in business and in life, with vulnerability and being awakened and how I boldly built a company to new levels and took risks to soar. Along my journey, my belief in myself, tenacity, courage, confidence, hope and faith grew exponentially. You will hear my message of enlightenment and my life changing principles for fearless living that will assist and inspire others to jump to their greatest potential. I hope to inspire my community to find their strength to live courageously, ignite their flame and leap joyously. I believe we should continually upgrade our dreams to preserve our road to happiness. You need to believe it can be done- this will set your mind in motion to find a way to do it.
