My friend Tawny, who I met through my colorectal surgeon, actually found the Girls With Guts organization. I came over to her house one day and she surprised me with a present. The present was a Girls With Guts metal bracelet. I still have this bracelet and love it. I quickly signed up for the Rancho Cortez, Texas Retreat. During the retreat I was constantly having life changing moments. By the end of the retreat, I had the support I never knew existed and I made lifelong friends I now call family. I went from an isolated butterfly to now a butterfly that now has no limits on life. Girls With Guts has opened my eyes to see the world in colors.
I have always wanted to volunteer for this wonderful organization. I wanted to make sure my heart, soul, and mind was 100% ready to commit and be there for others the way others have been there for me. I feel that my life is very flexible, and because of this I know this is my time after 8 years to shine as a volunteer.
I am very grateful to work full time in the Healthcare Field. Caring for people never feels like a job. I truly love what I do for a living. I am absolutely a family person. My mom is the light in my life. My goal in life is to give her the happiness life every mom deserves. My husband and I are big sport fans. We love to do date night at a restaurant watching hockey, baseball, football, and the Olympics. To be one with nature, you will find me at beach and Disneyland. I love reading any medical articles and astronomy. You will find me in the kitchen baking on quiet afternoons.
