I am passionate about connecting. I am passionate about being a beacon of hope to those who feel alone, or as if no one understands. I am a writer…. who also wears many hats: Mom, wife, amputee and trauma survivor, human rights advocate, outdoor adventure junkie and companion to the walking wounded.

I have written for The Huffington Post, Tiny Buddha, Medium, Able Outdoors Magazine, Elephant Journal,
