Thank you so much Tisha Marie Pelletier and Elisa Lane for adding me to this inspirational group of ladies. I wanted to take a moment and tell you about me. I was born and raised in New Rochelle NY. A very nice upper middle class suburb of NYC. At the age of 25 not sure what I wanted to do in life after a few different colleges and majors I came to AZ on vacation found a job as a Soux chef at the Holidome in Phx and stayed. Things got rough and in 2003 I found myself widowed and homeless with my middle son who was 2 years old at the time. I made a huge decision and with a little bit of help from a specific religious organization I went back to school for medical administration. I also found a spiritual program to help build me spiritually and free me from the bondage of self.
Right out of school I landed a position as a Sr surgery coordinator for a urology group in the east valley. Been there ever since. I also continue to raise my son who is now 15 and a football player at Skyline HS. I since have met the man of my dreams and had another son who is now 7 and is a mathamagician.
I was approached recently by a colleague to start selling makeup and skincare products. At first I was hesitant and thought nah that’s my thing. But then I thought oh wow what a way to meet more empowering women. So I started 💋S.W.A.K💋. And so far so good.
I am happier than I have been in years and I am having more fun than I have had in years. We fight less at home and the kids want to clean their rooms because I ask them nicely. Maybe. Lol
I am so looking forward to meeting more of you at the Holiday Hullabaloo and hearing your journey to freedom.
