I come from the school of hard knocks, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My parents divorced when I was 2 years old, so I know all too well how divorce can create limiting beliefs, issues and challenges.

Around 8 years old I came home to find my Mom in the hospital after she had been seriously electrocuted. The accident left her unable to walk for many years.

My Mom married an abusive alcoholic when I was 13. As a result I spent my fair share of time in government housing and women’s shelters.

When I was finishing high school and in University, my Mom was in and out of the hospital for a world of different illnesses that forced me to take care of myself in order to survive.
