but I finally got here!

To become who you want to be, you have to overcome
the obstacles in your way.

Liza Pavlakos

Living with a positive mindset,
guiding a young family.

Life will throw us many challenges, but what I know
to be true is that the pain in our hearts will not last
forever. I am proud of many accomplishments,
but nothing beats being a mother to my five children.
I genuinely believe that what matters most is how
we view ourselves and our ability to move forward.
We cannot change yesterday, but we can embrace
the now. I understand what it takes to overcome
trauma and the ravages of PTSD; however, I choose
to change the narrative of my story and rewrite how
I view “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder”. PTSD to me,
means be “Purpose, Trust, Determination and Success”.
If I can strive towards this, then so can you. It will be my most incredible honour and blessing to share my keynote to inspire your organisation.
