I think the world needs more heart. And cowboy boots. I believe in the power of strong faith, strong whiskey, and essential oils. I believe in healing, wholly and holy, from the inside out.

I am ruthlessly compassionate and interested in drinking deeply from the well of life. All of it. Every drop has something for us. I am spunky and sweet, fierce and gentle, intense and wide open hearted.

I collect stories and share them in the photos I take, in the songs I write, and in the bodies and minds I help heal.

I attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA and graduated from the New York Institute of Photography. My portfolio is steep. I've done everything from weddings and births to commercial real estate to National Geographic. I've taught the basics of photography to high schoolers overseas. I initially started my fine art photography business in 2005, but I've been taking pictures professionally since 2001.

Once upon a time, I lived in Prague, Czech Republic (in Central Europe) and started an artist's group. It was there that I first began to see myself as a prophetess. I began to speak truth and hope into people who would have been strangers. Instead, through my gift and their openness, we became deeply connected, if only for a moment.

I'm currently studying to become a Master Herbalist and Holistic Health Practitioner at the Dr. Christopher's School of Natural Healing. This summer, I'll graduate from Rosemary Gladstar's Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center.

I want to mix together these passions of mine: photography, holistic healing, writing, and truth-telling into one unstoppable cocktail. I want to teach and preach Hope. No matter where you are on your journey, no matter how desperate things might seem . . . I believe you can change your stars! I believe you can rewrite the script! I believe you can heal your body, mind, and soul!

But I'll be honest, cowboy boots will help.
