Inspirer . Speaker . Singer . Songwriter . Story Teller . Musician . Creator

Born in the wilds of Wyoming, I have had love of the mountains and music right out of the gate. Raised on the back of a horse and in the spotlight of the stage, it was my destiny to mold my lifestyle into a way I could do both my loves; performing while keeping a western lifestyle. At seventeen I endured a life changing accident that left me questioning my true purpose. While spending 9 months in a hospital bed with my legs elevated above my heart and unable to fit under a piano (the instrument I had played most my life), I taught myself to play guitar. I began writing songs of life, healing, and my deep love of Wyoming. I embarked on a deep and painful recovery for which I still continue of managing chronic pain, seeking truth and light, passion and inspiration. My father passed away in 2007 which sent me into another deep seeking, healing journey. Not long after my fathers death, my husband and I survived a very near death shooting. My mission now is to continue seeking peace, happiness, and joy, while helping as many people I can that too are on this path. Im continually passionate about sharing stories of joy, pain, healing, triumph, and love! Please stay connected and share your story with me.
