A former model on reality TV, I experienced a life-changing conversion back to my faith. I have a driving passion to lead and inspire women to embrace the mercy of Christ in their lives.
Through coaching, speaking engagements, my book, and my podcast, I have created a beautiful sisterhood of incredible women who are striving to be a light in this world.
So... How on earth did I go from modeling in NYC to a Public Speaker?
My life took a major turn when I let Christ enter in on April 2, 2005. I was in the middle of a modeling shoot when I realized that I just didn’t want to be a part of this life anymore.
By some miracle, during this photoshoot, I had a type of vision of myself before God—I saw myself standing in front of God with my hands—empty. Those empty hand were a type of depiction of my life.
And at that moment, I felt God speaking to my heart, he was telling me:“I made you for more.” It was a calling to do more with my life, and I knew it was true. I decided to walk out of the shoot, and never look back.
My conversion led me to deep healing and transformation to become the woman God made me to be. I accepted Christ during the darkest hour of my life and He ignited a fire within me.
I have now shared my testimony with hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. I have been honored to speak on more stages than I can count, such as the United Nations Panel, Word Trade Center Metro in Manila, Philippines, and at countless Church and Youth events like Seek, Steubenville Conferences & Focus Conferences.
I decided to further my studies and graduated with a Master’s Degree, magna cum laude, in Theology from The Augustine Institute & wrote my book, The Other Side of Beauty, all in the same year, while carrying and delivering my third child, Violet. #BabiesAndDreams for the win!
And most importantly, I married my Green Beret turned Farmer husband, Ricky. Together, Ricky and I have 6 children here on earth, and our daughter, Amelia, in heaven.
My driving force is to help you achieve
your full potential and dreams
As women, we are more than what our culture says or dictates. My purpose is to motivate, inspire and help you become the woman GOD created you to be, not who the world says you should be.
I am proud to be a wife, a mother, an entrepreneur and a motivator in the name of Christ Jesus. He heals, He redeems, & He makes us new. He sets us on a new path for Him and I am honored to have the opportunity to walk alongside you.
Whether you are looking to grow deeper in your faith, hoping to find a sisterhood of like-minded believers, or just starting on your faith journey, I’m here to walk alongside you.
I am proud and deeply grateful to earn a living sharing my story. But you should know that many of my efforts are towards projects that I can offer to you 100% free of charge. I keep it real and honest as I go. I’m known to hide fully-clothed in the tub to chat to my IG followers or give hair and fashion advice in my “I’m no expert” series. Please don’t expect picture perfect, but do expect lots of laughs, mom-life moments, thought-provoking ideas, unchanging truths, and an unwavering commitment to help you live your most beautiful life.
