I’ve been dirt poor, out of options and destined for a life of failure. I am one of 5 children, I lived in a household where it was truly an all-out battle for survival amongst the worst possible conditions. As if surviving those circumstances weren’t enough, on December 18, 2014, my nonverbal 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Life couldn’t be anymore unfair in my mind. All I ever got was kicked to the face! Here I was as an adult fighting for mine and my family’s survival. In a matter of 5 years, I went from 50K in debt to a sought after multimillion dollar closer and top level executive. In addition, my daughter went from the most restrictive special needs preschool, to an integrated elementary school class with typical peers. I was a woman possessed and obsessed with changing the potential outcome of our lives, and I want to help you.
