My passion is to inspire other women to take obstacles they have dealt with or are dealing with and use them as fuel to succeed in living a happy and healthy lifestyle. As a recovering drug addict and a victim of domestic violence I have learned to use my past as reasons to own my life and dream bigger then I could have ever imagined. I’m now in control of my life and I want to be the voice for those women who are in the shoes that I once lived in. Nobody can do it alone, and I want to help women realize that they are ENOUGH.
