I’m spunky, bold, and fiercely passionate about people, whether on stage, at the grocery store, or in my hair salon. My life’s purpose is to be motivational, contagiously funny, and salt and light to everyone I meet. I’ve always had a passion for Jesus and making people laugh.
When I was suddenly faced with terrible chronic pain that took me to my knees, all I had left was the One who made me. When no doctor could help, and no medication worked, my Lord rescued me, through solace and scripture, from a journey of despair and utter pain. It continues to be the hardest, dirtiest, most painful fight of my life, but it helped me grow more than I thought possible. Along the way, I reached a mountaintop that I didn’t know existed. I’d love to share the encouragement and motivation I’ve discovered through years of loving on people as a master barber, as a survivor of chronic pain, and from those wacky moments of marriage and parenthood.
I’m a Jesus-loving joy sprinkler from Des Moines, Iowa, where I live with my husband of 20 years and two teenage children. Invite me into your office, home, church or book club to guide and motivate you. I believe every day is a new beginning. I want to encourage you through the tough stuff, help motivate your day, and sprinkle some joy on you!
