How did you get your start in working with children?
Children have always “ended up at my home” Sunday school teacher, youth group leader, mentor, foster parent, and neighborhood mom
You are a mother, mentor and entrepreneur, how did you keep your balance?
For many years I didn’t keep my balance. Now I understand how vital balance is and I ensure that I am checking myself Mentally, emotionally, and physically. I have a great friend that does wellness checks on me as well. In addition I (we) travel often which is my balance.
It takes a special person with a heart for people to become a foster parent, what does this part of your life mean to you?
It means the world to me. A child gets a second family, and you get an added child to pour into. Having the awesome opportunity to be a foster parent is an indescribable feeling for many reasons, but mainly because you get an opportunity to mold someone that you chose to be responsible for and they get an opportunity to see that there is a such thing as a healthy family environment.
Can you share a little about the need for more foster parents in each community?
There’s an overwhelming need for foster parents. They are so many children in the foster care system who only have one desire and that is to wake up in a home with people that they love them and love them and if someone has the resources and the space I would challenge them to take a moment, even if you’re just a temporary foster care. To pour love into someone that temporary Time can change their entire life, which ultimately affects the world and makes it a better place.

A pretty woman who hustles is someone gets up after a loss and figure out how to win. She has the heart of a lion, the soul of a Champion, the resilience of the Tardigrades, and the Spirit of an Angel. A woman, inside, and out.
A woman who loves herself and others, who believes in herself and others , who is willing to help herself and others. A pretty woman has more than a beautiful body or a pretty face, A pretty woman who hustles has a solid foundation and a “killa” mentality.
