"I was born into a middle class working family. The great granddaughter of immigrants mixed with descendants of first nations. While not all were bad, some were criminals, and others were abusive, but I got out when I was 17. Rented a row house in the city.
From there I worked my butt off in the entertainment industry as a model, actor, writer, and producer. I had my son early on and married a Hollywood writer and producer. We did some great work in the industry for about ten years. I had some bad experiences but as always I found my way out.
When I was just 30 years of age I collapsed while working on set. They sent me to Urgent Care and ultimately it turned out I had cancer. My trauma had caught up with my body. (See ACE scoring system)
I spent the next 3 years in and out of the hospital, racking up medical bills that took me years to pay off. Eventually my insurance ran out, my marriage ended, and I had no where to go and not much to live for.
I was invited to go on a vision quest. I went out to the desert and spent a week completely unplugged from my phone, tv, internet, everything that had to do with the outside world. I won’t tell you everything that happened that week, but the teacher asked me one important question that stuck with me. He said “You will have to choose. Do you want to live or die?”
I realized that I had a desire to do more things with my life so I decided to live. I came back to Los Angeles, joined a local church, started volunteering like crazy, and within 9 months I went into spontaneous remission. The doctors had no explanation for my recovery. They did not expect me to live past the year 2016.
Each year past that death date has been a bonus year for me. And I have tried to make the most of my life. I diligently spend time with my son. I work toward my dreams and goals as a story teller. And I spend my spare time advocating for exploitation and trafficking survivors.
It took a lot of spiritual discovery and varying methods of recovery to get me where I am today. I have pieced together the aspects of my journey that were the most helpful to me and written them into my latest book From Pain To Purpose. After experiencing trauma or loss we then have to find a way back to our purpose and calling in life. That journey can be hard to do on our own. God held my hand and walked me through to where I am now. I’m excited to share these insights, methods, and miracles with you."
As I always say “Life is better when we do it together.”
