I am a hard working mom.  I have 1 child and 2 foster children who have been with me for 6 years.  My house is full and so is my heart!  I grew up in Sunny South Africa, during apartheid, in a household without race.  My parents brought me up to know no difference between black and white and my best friend growing up was the black Zimbawean gardener next door.  Having grown up in a picture perfect family, I struggled through an abusive relationship for 8 years, not knowing how to deal with abuse.  I was a young single mom by the age of 25 and my son’s face could pull me through the darkest of times.

My passion is for children!  I love children and I love people.  I also think education for children on how to deal with abuse and trauma should be everywhere!
