I am not a writer by any means, however I am a grieving mother from a rural area in north central Missouri. I’ve always had a passion for mental health and my day job is that of a case manager in a correctional center. I co-founded the non-profit organization MOMS Breaking the Silence after my middle child, Zayne’s suicide in hopes of saving lives and ending the stigma surrounding mental health. Most of my free time is spent making memories with my boyfriend, Stephen, my son, Dakotah and his girlfriend, Morgan, and my daughter, Bronwhyn.
