Thanks for stopping by! I am an author, wife, mother, and chicken owner living in rural Wisconsin. A continuous learner, I hold multiple college degrees and can always be found leveling up my intelligence by reading non-fiction books and watching Bravo TV. When it isn’t below freezing in northern Wisconsin, I enjoy gardening, hiking, running and drinking double shot lattes on the shores of Moon Lake.
December 2020, I self-published my first book in which I shared my truths around being a plus-sized runner and all of the insecurities that come with that. A few days after launching my book, my father died. I was heartbroken but all too familiar with living with loss. Over 25-years prior I had lost my mother at just 18. I didn’t know it at the time but it was the start of my second self-published book. Now What? Navigating life after loss will be out on April 6, 2023 and explores loss of all sizes and how I managed to move forward while still creating time and space to grieve.
