My Story

Life consists of challenging waves.
Small waves, Big waves, and the rare Tsunami.
I’ve learned this from living life with severe cerebral palsy and the mental health challenges that followed.
I went into the ocean to learn how to heal the broken bits of my soul. I found meaning in the suffering: to surf each of these challenging waves as they arise.
Yes, even the Tsunami wave. I will show you how to ride your own waves of adversity and uncertainty that life gives.
You may be facing a tsunami right now, but we will surf that wave together to calm waters.
