HER Lifestyle Blog

My entire life, I have searched and longed for acceptance, a safe zone, a womanhood. Life was tough for us as kids. Financially my parents had it hard. It seemed like every time it felt like we were settled in a new home, a new school, with a new set of friends, rent would go up and it was time to pack up and go. That was our norm. I never imagined that I could be where I am today.

More now than ever, my career behind the chair has allowed me to experience a womanhood I never thought was possible. My clients and I share such wonderful and beautiful life experiences and yet also such sad and sorrowful times.

I have to say, women, we are pretty amazing! One thing for sure is each and every one of us have difficulty in seeing our potential, our beauty, and how beautifully and uniquely made we are. It is why I decided and needed to create HER Lifestyle Blog.

I ask that you join me on this journey of acceptance, this journey where we can relate, be open, have no negativity, encourage, empower, and uplift. Where we can laugh, shed tears, share our life experiences, be Fierce, be Beautiful, be Independent, be HER. Because we can all be HER.
