“The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why”
– Mark Twain

In 2015, after being laid off from her corporate job of 14 years, her family moved from Northern NJ to Acworth, GA excited about the opportunity to finally live out God's promise. A month or so after moving into a new life of wonderment and open space, her mother suddenly suffered a stroke a few weeks before Christmas. Within the next 6 months God called both her mother and her Nana, her mother's mother, whom helped to raise her, home to Glory. Two weeks after burying her mother while in the shower she heard God say "I want you to teach." She respositioned herself and refocused to answer God's call and use her gifts.
