After almost two years of processing, grieving and beginning the journey of healing, I felt inspired to share my story and the raw feelings associated when coping with death.

My life changed on April 26, 2013 when I unexpectedly found my mother no longer breathing. The trauma this has brought my life is immeasurable. I will be the first to admit there was a period of time it felt impossible to find hope but today I am proud and empowered to share that through the very real and difficult process of grieving, I have once again found a bright light and purpose for my life.

The idea of Hope of a Butterfly is to be vulnerable and transparent because loss, grief and change in general is HARD. I want to offer real feelings as a way of encouragement to you because you can overcome life’s greatest challenges. We all are bound to face hardships that create adversity, heartache and darkness. It is my hope to open your eyes, mind and most importantly heart to the beauty that can transpire from change.

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou
