Deep inside of me, intensified by the horrors of my abusive childhood, is a voice of advocacy that will speak out against any and all injustice.
There was a time when I thought this activist pull was a survival thing, part of my need to be in control, defend myself, and never let anyone hurt me again. Now I realize, this is who I am. I am a bleeding heart at my core, and my abuses only magnified my ability to empathize, understand, and show compassion to other people’s pain.
This is my superpower.
I will tell my story so our pain has a face; I will provide space to share your journey with you; I will help you carry the weight of your pain when it is too much for you to bear, and I will fight for you when you feel like you have nothing left to give.
We deserve nothing less.
My Purpose is Becoming Clear
For the last 15 years of my life I have held positions of leadership in many capacities. I spent 10 years working in the upper levels of political and community campaigns.
My cumulative experience and skills over the course of my life have set me up to run my own non-profit.
Now, before I get ahead of myself, you are all witnessing the literal moment of conception of this ah-ha moment. But there is something here and it needs to be explored.
Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”
― Paul Brandt
