I was raised by a father who was only 11 when he had to flee by foot from his home in East Prussia to Southern Germany with his mother and younger brother. My mother lost her mother at age 2 and grew up on an Iowa farm before any social programs to help with expenses. By age 9, she was able to cook and clean so my grandfather let the live-in housekeeper go. In short, I come from a heritage of hard-working survivors.
I am the youngest of 3 (my two sisters are 12 and 14 years older than me). I spent the first 25 years of my life feeling extremely defective, often lonely, no matter how many people were around. My son was diagnosed with high-functioning autism around age 3.
I know the pain and frustration of living a life that isn’t mine along with the satisfaction of recognizing my power. I know what it’s like to feel trapped, paralyzed by fear and self doubt. I’ve also experienced the freedom on the other side. I know what it’s like to resent the past before learning to forgive and be grateful for it.
Through several miracles and amazing people who’ve graced my life, I am able to share discoveries from my heart. My intention is to be fully present, authentic and open to opportunities while living my best possible life! May your heart be open and soul inspired.
Thank you for reading.
