Obstacles are opportunities for growth and perseverance! In 2007 I tried to take my life by chainsaw cutting my left hand off full of chemicals, no hope and begging to die thankfully I was sparred! I struggled an additional 14 years with addiction unteachable… finally, I was given the absolute gift of desperation!

Today I am able to share my story with a sober mind, heart, and Spirit full of opportunity with the willingness to continue to grow while helping others looking at life as a gift and absolute adventure every single day no matter what hand I am dealt! Inspiring and motivating through mountain biking/marathons and volunteering — always willing to lend a hand with the “ability,” community! This is my comeback story!
