My Story

Childhood Years

I was born in September of 1977 in a small city outside of Dallas, Tx. I had an older sister I wanted to be just like and a baby brother I just adored. Life was simple, we drank from the water hose, played outside till the street lights came on, and we learned the value of earning our keep.  I had a great childhood full of love, laughter, and memories that will last a lifetime. 

For as long as I can remember I've dreamed of being an artist, more importantly, an Artist for God. I've always known that God had a calling on my life, a calling that would lead me through deep waters... I just had no idea how far.

MILITARY LIFE

USMC

In May, 2000 I committed my life to my country and joined the Marine Corps at just 19 years old. I found a sense of purpose and pride as I embarked on a 14 year journey that would set the tone for the rest of my life. I was able to serve in Iwaki, Japan, Twentynine Palms, Ca, Quito, Ecuador then New Orleans, La. The experiences I gained, the values I've learned, and the memories I hold will forever be in my heart and continue to play a major part in who I am today.

Family Life

In 2011 I married my husband and began to grow our family pretty quickly. By 2018 we were a family of 9 on a fast track to what I call "Beautiful Chaos". All of our children are vibrant, feral, healthy children who are all involved in sports, music and the arts. My husband and I have owned our own gym since 2013 where we have been inspiring our community to fight for their fitness, family, and faith.  

My family is my WHY, they are why I fight to lead us all to the gates of heaven!
