We all have a story to tell. I have been blessed with many. As a teacher, mentor and coach I have experienced a lot of joy watching the people I have worked with achieve success in so much. It elevates me to feel as though I have played a small role in their stories.
But I am more than what you see, I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, an animal lover, an artist and an avid gardener; a woman with a strong faith and a reverent heart despite the deep sorrow I have endured. A few months after giving birth to my daughter my first husband was diagnosed with lung Cancer. He passed away nineteen month later.
My story doesn’t end there. In 2007, I was favored with love once again. My second husband, Ricardo Barros, was an amazing man. He adopted my daughter and was truly the best father I could ask for. It was heartbreaking to watch him suffer and decline from stomach cancer. He passed away in 2017.
