As one of my favorite seasons arrives, I look forward to new beginnings and a renewal of inspiration. I am excited for what the rest of what this year will bring. I am continually practicing what I preach! I am committed to being open to new opportunities and truly putting myself “out there” in a very different way. Those who know me personally know that I love a stage, but this is different and forcing me to expose my true self even more.
I want to help others realize that they have the tools to accomplish anything big or small, I want to motivate those who are ready to act, but need a little kick in the a$$. I want to inspire those who are struggling with finding the courage and self-esteem that is hiding within. I want to educate people on how to stay true to their goal and be UN-apologetically authentic to whom they are.
I am challenging you to dip your toes in the pool of opportunity.
Start with choosing one of my DIVA EDU© principles and taking one action a day, week, or month for the remainder of this year.

What do these words mean to you? How can you make small changes that bring forth transformational opportunities?
I am working to develop workshops based on utilizing these principles to enhance your everyday life and help you push through to your goal whatever it may be!
Stay tuned and stay true!
Adventures in Substitute Teaching
Posted 4 years ago.
Last Friday was my last day substitute teaching for my husband. I will miss the good and remember the bad. My goal was to show kids that just because you are different does not mean you are not “normal” ewwa I hate that word. Normal is a social construct.
Everyone is different and there is beauty in that diversity. I shared and showed that - you can be yourself and be successful.
Fast-forward to 2016...
I feel that this is still true today. I always share with students and professionals that authenticity is valued and appreciated. We are all unique diverse individuals and there is power in those differences; power to change perceptions, ideology, and negativity. What is normal...honestly? Never devalue your individuality to concede to this so called idea of "normal". Have the courage and confidence to be different!
I am a speaker, writer, artist, but most of all I am authentic. I aim to inspire, motivate, and educate using unconventional and creative methods. Determined, Inspirational, Valued, Altruistic, Educated, Daring, Unique©
