As a young child, she had a literal life-altering experience which changed the way that she viewed life, love and loss. She also used her newfound knowledge when it was needed later on, as life became difficult and challenging.

The trauma that her family experienced while going through years of difficulty is what led her to her decision to become an ordained minister and to help others who were in need of support.

The shocking events that shook her family to the core and made them all realize the fragility of life became the driving force behind her desire to help others. As painful as it was, she persevered and came through the events both stronger and more empathetic. She now uses her experiences as a basis to help those who are alone or suffering.
