Live With Intention

Living in Las Vegas, I have done a lot of reflecting this last week, while also being so grateful that I and all of my friends are safe. I am so grateful that every person that I actually know that was in attendance at the Route 91 Festival made it out physically unharmed. Mentally is a whole … [continue]

Lasting Effects

It has been about a year and a half since I was hit by the baseball bat that I talk about here. To this day, my orbital rim is still broken which effects my day to day life. I am still limited on what activities I can do, what I can eat, how long I […]


It’s Time for a Change

At the ER after being hit by a thrown bat at the Sept 2nd Arizona Diamondbacks vs Toronto Blue Jays baseball game.

On September 3, 2013, I joined a couple girlfriends for what was supposed to be a fun girls’ night out at the Arizona Diamondbacks game against the Toronto Blue Jays. When we saw where our seats were, we were all excited because we thought that they were great seats! You see, we were seated just […]


Our Road Trip to Moore, OK

Last weekend we took a road trip to Moore, OK to deliver the bears that our pageant sisters had collected.  While we were there we were given a tour of some of the areas hit by the tornadoes, stopped by and donated to a pet adoption event for displaced animals and had an incredible brainstorming […]


Memorial Day

This weekend I hope that you took a moment to stop and reflect on, and teach your kids about, what Memorial Day is. I am proud to say that I served our country.  I am also very proud of the fact that many people that I went to high school with have done the same […]

Found this on the web

Last night I did a google search on my name, just to see what was out there. I found a post I made on a site that had an email address for a site that I didn’t even remember ever owning, let alone developing. My mom put the domain into and not only did […]


March 5, 2006

I promised that I would tell more about who I am, and how I came to be that person.  March 5, 2006 is a day that will always live on, in both my head and my heart.  On March 5, 2006, I lost the second of my two younger brothers, Chris. You see, I was […]



For those of you that haven’t known me that long, I put together a graphic to show my progress so far in my weight loss journey getting ready for the pageant in June. Thank you to Fitness Revolution for helping me come so far already!  Looking forward to my workouts for the next 4 1/2 […]


My Story

As I attend events for various charities, and start thinking about writing my bio for the pageant in June, I have come to realize that most of the people currently in my life don’t know “my story.”  Everyone knows that I give a lot of my time to charity, but they don’t know why, or […]
