I am glad you are here. As an “introverted external processor”, writing is a passion of mine. It is one of many creative avenues I use to express myself, my thoughts, my trials, and my triumphs. I find exceptional joy in encouraging others, and I hope that you will find encouragement in these posts.
I am happily 7 years into marriage with my wonderful husband, David, who happens to love thrill and adventure as much as I do. My favorite adventures by far are the ones we embark on together. With every great adventure, however, comes great trials. The idea of an adventure is often romanticized and glamorized through highlights, stories, and pictures that don’t delve into the hard stuff. But learning to navigate the hard stuff is essential to to overcoming any trial to find triumph.
For me, some of my biggest trials have been navigating through a 6-year season of recurrent pregnancy loss, infertility, miscarriage, and pregnancy after loss. If you are walking through a similar season, I hope to be a resource and a support for you on your journey. Trials are what shape us, but they don’t have to break us. My story is a testimony that there is ALWAYS hope.
I am passionate about raising awareness and believe that understanding trauma and how it impacts all of us is essential to effectively promoting healing in our own lives from the trials we have experienced and in the lives of others. I feel incredibly grateful to have been given opportunities to speak to thousands of individuals (locally and internationally) and to be used as a catalyst to educate, empower, and equip communities to love others compassionately and without conditions.
I don’t think we can truly appreciate the beauty of life and adventure without the whole picture of both triumphs and trials. I believe it’s of utmost importance to go deeper with one another in life, embrace the beauty of vulnerability, and recognize our own innate courage and resilience to overcome our trials.
I started Catalyst for Courage in 2021 to offer women on the difficult journey of infertility, miscarriage, and pregnancy after loss one-on-one emotional support, community with other women who “get it”, and the tools and resources they need to catalyze their breakthrough. Catalyst for Courage is everything I wish I had when I was in the middle of my journey of infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss.
I look forward to connecting with you I hope to help you find the courage to always hold onto hope no matter what your circumstances look like.
