Passion is what you love doing but passion pursued is living.


I'm a writer, speaker, counselor, wife, friend, mom, Latina, and a creative. I love laughing, dancing, cooking, reading, writing and painting. Though I love to create my heart is deeply moved when I sit over a cup of tea and connect with friends and family.

Fun Facts

  • Most embarrassing parenting moment:

    We had some family friends over and one of the kids got hurt. My 2 year old rushed to his aid with a pad that he was referring to as a giant bandaid.

  • Myself, in three words or less:

    Passionate about life.

  • One thing I wish I knew before having kids:

    Though you're the most confident person in the world, there's something about motherhood that makes you constantly second guess your decisions.
