About Me

Most days, you’ll find me driving my kids around, watching Real Housewives, cussing at the pile of laundry that never ends and laughing at the hilarious things my kids do. I am always ready to hop in the car and find my next adventure, even if it’s just Target.

I thought I had life figured out until my daughter Remy was born 6 years ago. She came into this world as perfect as can be but then everything changed. When she was 9 months old, she had seizure that would change her life in a way I could never have imagined. From hospital stays, developmental delays, a diagnosis of autism and rare form of epilepsy called PCDH19, I didn’t have the kind of tools I needed to navigate the world of special needs parenting.

The Podcast

In my podcast, you’ll hear raw and vulnerable insights into the world of special needs parenting. I cover topics that parents face raising children with neurological disabilities.

With a mix of inspiration, honest stories and actionable tips; my goal is to help you realize your power to be the parent you always dreamed, even if that’s in a different package than you expected.

Your child’s here to change the consciousness on our planet.  You hold the key to help them shine their amazing light into this world.

You learn from other autism moms.⁣

They're the ones who know what it's like to wake up 5 times a night because their child doesn't sleep. They know what it's like to be stared at and judged for their child's meltdown in the restaurant. They know what it's like when no one invites their child to the birthday party. They know what it's like to completely change everything about themselves to become what their child needs. They know what it's like to love a person so deeply, it literally hurts.⁣
