About

Born and raised in California, I have called Texas home for over 25 years now. I am married to my best friend and ever patient husband. We have two kids (a son and a daughter) who I adore, two dogs who are a bit crazy, and we love to travel.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2000. At that time I was a young mother with a 2-year-old and 5-year-old. I had to learn early on to prioritize my health in order to keep up with my young children and still work a full-time job. I don’t let this condition control my life and I prefer to find natural ways to minimize the flares.

By day I am an IT Manager for a local government/utility, so I am a bit of a technology nerd and specialize in IT technology implementation, strategy, and cybersecurity. I love to read about leadership, self-improvement, and a good mystery novel (when I can hold a book up!).

I share healthy recipes and successful strategies I have found for coping with fibromyalgia and chronic pain. I also enjoy sharing inspiring words, and I hope I can inspire others as well.

I believe everyone should educate themselves to be their own best health advocate. I also have personal experience as a patient advocate, navigating hospice care, and advocating for my father during his final days.

More about me…

  • I find joy in everyday life: taking pictures, walking the dogs, cooking a good meal, gardening, or discovering a new place we’ve never been before.
  • I believe you should love what you do, smile as much as you can, learn something new every day, and fail forward.
  • I believe attitudes matter, and a positive attitude matters positively.
  • I believe eating dessert first is OK (once in awhile) and life is too short to drink bad coffee.

  1. First things first; your daughter is gorgeous! Second; reading the “more about me” makes me wish we lived next door to each other. I think we’d get along fantastically. I can’t wait to read more of your blog. Along with a spinal cord injury (and complications caused by that) I also have Fibromyalgia and I love reading about how others handle it.
