Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!
I gladly serve as a Christian preacher, relationship educator, certified facilitator, and founder of Healthy Relationships Network.
My mission is to spread hope, in meaningful ways, that reminds women and families that they are in fact loved by God despite the reality of suffering, trauma, grief, and difficult times. I mostly focus on helping people address emotional challenges and unhealthy relationship cycles with compassion, the truth of the scriptures, and practical tools.
Over the years, I have taught, facilitated, and contributed at singles + ministry wives retreats, emotional wellness sessions, women’s conferences + events, local church ministries, college campuses, non profit organizations, media outlets, Bible-based trauma healing groups, etc.
In addition to a Masters Degree in Education, I hold a Certificate of Completion in emotional management (Center for Pastoral Counseling) and am a Certified Facilitator in both Bible-based trauma healing (Trauma Healing Institute) and the SYMBIS Assessment (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts).
I founded Healthy Relationships Network, a relational wellness platform in 2017. Its digital publication, Tips + Prayers for Women Who Want to Date Well has been a go-to resource for many.
I was led to write Mommyhood Deconstructed in January 2020 after realizing that God was using my role as a mother to redefine the motives of my heart. After giving up a successful career as an adult math teacher/teacher leader, I understand more that God has the final say and will most certainly complete his work in me as a “perfectly imperfect” mother. It’s my prayer that other “mommies” will join me on this beautiful journey of discovery and purpose for the sake of honoring God and loving our children well.
Two of my greatest joys are being married to Jason for the last 13 years and a mom to Jordyn, a “spunky” and outgoing 1st grader. You will find me on most days cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, plotting my next day trip adventure, navigating Pandemic life, or writing my next blog post about womanhood, family, the matters of the heart, and the faith that holds everything together.
