Originally from SW Georgia, I grew up in a very rural farm setting and enjoyed a complicated, but colorful childhood, with many varied experiences. I attended Columbus State University for 6 years, and achieved 2 degrees, Science and Art. At 15, I began performing in a Professional Dance Company and I have modeled and danced professionally for over 20 years. Upon my thirties, just after being wed in Cleveland, OH (1996) I experienced a major illness which required me to go deep within myself to heal along with acquiring a great amount of knowledge of the herbal kingdom and a new found sense of health and well-being to come out of it alive on the other side. Some shamans have referred to it as "the dark night of the soul", well I certainly would refer to it that way and gained so much in the light from the ordeal and feel blessed for it and willing to share what I have learned and spread peace & love to others. I consider it a calling to my higher self, a release, and of which many of my poetic offerings here on OP may or may not reflect. I am happily married with one child and reside in Beachwood, OH, where my husband's family is from. Group and Personal Fitness Training is my current passion. I spend a lot of time with my clients helping them reach health and wellness goals of their own.
I love writing, music and art. I also work with musical selection for demonstration and presentation purposes. Often, I feel that poetry and journalling have carried me during some of the roughest waters I've had to pass through which is why I return to it again and again. I was inspired and disciplined by many awesome mentors who helped me become confident and hone my individual skill-set. I take parenting very seriously and regard it as a gift and a treasured role in my life.
I have deep connection to spirit and mysticism.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
