I graduated Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor's Degree in Health Service Administration. I have over 25 years of experience in corporate and non-profit work environments.
I have worked in Product Management, Content Marketing, and as an Assistant Content Manager for e-Commerce; B2B and B2C for an International consumer product company. In addition, I have also worked in the health care industry and for non-profit organizations as both an Admissions Director and Development Director.
For the past 16 years, I have devoted my time to volunteering for various non-profit and community organizations, including; The Polycystic Kidney Foundation (PKD); Fragile X Alliance of Ohio; Trials for Hope and The Children's Center of Medina County, to name a few.
So many changes need to be made to stop this epidemic. We need to remove the stigma of this topic in order to move forward.
I began writing my first book in 2019. The book focuses on my personal journey of being the mom of two children who were sexually abused/assaulted. I also have been the victim of emotional, verbal and mental abuse in my first marriage, so I write about my experiences dealing with that as well. How I hit rock bottom, dealing with depression and anxiety. And how I have made the decision to use all the negative experiences I have encountered in my life, to overcome adversity and help others. I hope my story, strength and courage will inspire someone else to keep going and never give up.
I am now beginning this journey, with my daughter, to be a voice and help other individuals and families who have been victims of abuse. We advocate for everyone, especially teens and individuals with special needs. Encouraging individuals to use their voices and speak up.
