A little Bio..
You’d never know the depth of the struggles of the past unless I told you.
So, let me dive in a little….
Raised in Peoria, Illinois, I definitely fit the criteria of a “troubled child”, causing havoc in my teenage years.
Becoming a mom at the age of 17, I continued down the destructive path of bad behavior.
My reckless ways continued into my early 20’s, not holding myself accountable for anything.
The early 20s was also the death of my grandmother and a devastating blow to me. This was the woman who raised me, and was hands on with my son, because I chose to keep being in the streets.
But life had to continue, and my big sister stepped up to help me in so many ways. We’re 9 1/2 years apart in age and she was my savior, guidance counselor to say the least.
Until I lost her to heart failure in 2009.
She left behind 2 boys, whom I didnt hesitate to raise my as my own. However, I continued to struggle and suppress my own traumas.
Cancer, gun violence, and family struggles are just a FEW of many life challenges I’ve experienced along the way.
Sorry, gotta catch the book for the rest of this story..
Fast forward, life changed in a dangerous way for me in 2020 and it was at THAT MOMENT in March, I started to hold myself accountable for ALL my actions over the years.
Accepting responsibility that I was the major reason for my restricted behaviors, and my own actions kept me stuck in the same negative situations and habits, and ONLY I could change that.
APRIL 2020, transformation began, embarking on my journey of growth, going BENEATH the surface to face things head on.
This journey has completely shifted my way of life. It has helped me change my way of thinking when it comes to life, love and EXISTING.
Along with my newfound clarity and intention, this transformational process shifted me from a full time employee into a:
- Full time entrepreneur
- Certified Life Coach
- Podcast Host
- Mindset Motivator
Damn proud of where I stand today, a woman that brought peace to her life with reconditing tools, which are a pivotal resource as to what Upgraded MindsetZ offers.
