I was born in early April, 1981, in a mid-sized town in the Midwest. My first distinct memory is of my mom singing "You Are My Sunshine" to me as she rocked me in a chair. I made it through childhood unscathed, being quite the assertive young lady who was known to put others down in order to mask my own insecurities. I often found myself in trouble with my parents for lying about where I was going and who I was with. I had a knack for making poor decisions, particularly when it came to matters of the heart. I started dating my first boyfriend at the tender age of 14, when I had no business doing so. He and I ended up breaking up in a very tumultuous fashion, and it took me several years to recover from the emotional trauma of that relationship. I attended college and received my Bachelor's degree in 2009, but it wasn't until I enrolled in a Master's program a few years later that I truly learned to trust myself and listen to my inner voice. I don't always get it right the first time, but I am always willing to try again. I learned that it was possible to take risks and still be successful. My twenties were a time of discovery, self-exploration and growth. I made a conscious effort to be open-minded and to accept myself for who I am. I now recognize that it's ok to make mistakes and that I can pick myself back up and try again. I am still a work in progress, but I'm proud of the person I am today and the dedication I have to my own personal growth and development.
