Hello, Courage

A step-by-step course guiding you through finding your creative joy during life's challenging times, utilizing videos, worksheets and more!

In this self-paced e-course, I will share with you about my own story and how I found COURAGE amidst these supposed life “defining” events, turning my heartaches into CREATIVE JOY. I'm a successful illustrator, blogger, mother and wife - happily married to the most incredible man...and looking FORWARD to the adventures of life that are still out there!

I'm also a survivor of child abuse, rape, and domestic violence. I lost my father after an 8-month battle with cancer in 2011 and am a survivor of a terrible car crash in 2014, that turned my plans upside down, forcing me to face life in ways never imagined. Having faced many tragedies, I’ve had to learn how to stand up, spread my wings and FLY! You can too! Join me on this creative journey to find your COURAGE today!
