ABOUT THE BOOK
In this collection of poems, written in sequence with the unfolding of the narrator, we explore all of the habits, thought processes, and love stories that must be eradicated in order to meet our higher self. "This world makes it so easy to forget ourselves. Our souls are screaming to be seen and felt and we stuff cotton balls into our ears to drown out the noise. We put poison into our bodies to combat the hunger."

The joy and clarity it brings her has led her to devote her work to help others heal and find happiness wherever they stand. Her client base is predominantly women and she strives to help them on their journeys to create businesses that are inclusive, conscious, and forward thinking. She lets her culture and experiences as a women shine through in her work in the hopes others can see representation for their experiences and feel empowered.
