My Story

I am a successful survivor of childhood abuse. I am one of an estimated 12 million former foster kids in the US, and one of the tens of thousands of foster and adoptive parents.

I am a licensed master social worker with over 15 years of experience working with youth and families in child protective services, education and mental health services. As an educator and an advocate for promoting change for and value within people, I work to inspire and motivate others to grasp their own form of hope.


I am also a motivational speaker and certified trainer many areas, including suicide prevention and trauma-informed approaches.  I provide therapeutic services through my private practice clinic.

I am the Executive Director of the Successful Survivors Foundation, a Trust Based Relational Intervention Practitioner, and a certified Accelerated Resolution Therapist.

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Mike, and we have two amazing kids. We reside in the great, central state of Kansas.
