I love words. Words have amazing power and can be used as a catalyst for healing. I have been writing and performing poetry for several years. I am the author of the book, The Rebirth: A Woman's Poetry which is a collection of my original poems. My experience stretches beyond performing spoken word to also hosting both live events as well as a radio show. I love facilitating writing workshops in groups as small as 5 and as large as 50. I have already had the opportunity to speak at business mixers, book clubs, women's groups, church programs, theater debuts, as well as more traditional spoken word poetry venues. I look forward to sharing my gift of story telling with new audiences.
