My mission is to remind people not to take today or any day for granted, to stand in gratitude for everything that comes forward in life as all comes in through God's plan for our spiritual growth and greater connection to Him, and to inspire people to stand strong in their faith, knowing without hesitation, that God always delivers that which is for our greater good and that we have the strength to turn tragedy and hardship into blessings and triumph. I talk about overcoming trials and tribulations as I have endured 6 epidurals, 7 spinal taps, a nerve block, spinal cord stimulator, 3 back surgeries, 12 catheters, and was bed ridden for 6 months and am only 26 years old now.

I am a motivational speaker who lives in Apple Valley California. I will travel anywhere to speak if I have the date available and if I feel it is the right opportunity for me. I am passionate about my love for Christ and about sharing my testimony which I have had the privilege to share with thousands of people and the most memorable one being on Easter Sunday. I was extremely athletic and active growing up but one day that would all go out the window as I woke up with a herniated disc that doctors thought was going to make me permanently paralyzed. After surgery I was fine but six months later weakness and severe pain from my neck down to my toes would appear that would leave me fighting for my life as I became bed ridden, had seen over fifty doctors having 6 epidurals, 7 spinal taps, a nerve block and spinal cord stimulator, 12 catheters before being diagnosed with a rare incurable spinal cord disease called arachnoiditis just to name a few. I have taken the pain and used it to glorify God by using my life, trials, tribulations and struggles to give others hope and to share with them that when you think no one knows what you are going through that God is always there to pick you up and He fights our battles for us. I have spoken to all ages from junior high to Senior Citizens and would love to share my story world wide. I have had the privilege of being in the newspaper several times along with being on the radio to share the excitement that God brings in someones life. When I speak I use my smile, wit and passion to get the audience engaged.
Additional Booking Notes
A guest and myself must be with me at all times as I can not drive and need to bring my power chair with me wherever I go. I would need a wireless mic and that is it.
I have been in the newspaper several times sharing my testimony and about being able to be happy even while in the midst of a storm. I was on Channel 7 news before I was diagnosed. My biggest accomplishment was speaking on Easter Sunday at First Christian Church of Victorville.
