Founder & Champion of Warriors in Hope®
A few years ago, a parent’s worst nightmare became my own. I got the knock on the door every parent dreads. My daughter had been murdered.
I was painfully aware that Jamie was struggling with addiction and a dangerous lifestyle. She suffered a near-fatal gunshot wound 12 years and 12 days prior when she was eighteen. Still, I never imagined it coming to this.
After the cloud of anger, confusion, and disbelief subsided, I was left with the question, “What now?”
Anyone who’s lived a couple of decades on this planet has been blindsided by something. Fear has come calling.
After losing my daughter to drugs and murder, I started on a journey to create a blueprint that embraces courage as its north star. Now, I help other women conquer what they fear most so they can live a life of joy where adversity no longer writes the rules.
We’ve been taught we must be superheroes to be courageous. We think of the Military, Firefighters, Policemen, and all those on the front lines who protect and save, but the truth is, we are all living a life on the front lines in some way.
There is hope, whether you are a struggling parent, grieving sibling, or anyone feeling ill-equipped to withstand loss, grief, and the unimaginable. You can learn to live and thrive in the face of everyday fears or if you get the knock on the door with the worst news ever.
Now, my story is a compass that guides others toward a path of recovery, hope, and unbreakable strength.
