Beach-loving, Florida transplant who loves ALL things outdoors. Water, waves, salty air, and warm breezes are where I find the most joy. While I admit my loyalty to this wonderful state, I will forever claim status as a native Texan, born and raised in Dallas with deep southern roots that are still lovingly planted.
Professionally, I'm a passionate educator who calls ALL students my own. I'm a recently published author/illustrator, blogger, podcaster, and tech tool fanatic.
Personally, I'm a wife, mom, daughter, and sister. Married to my best friend, Tim. One son, Austin. One lab mix rescue, Piper Lou. We enjoy the simple things in life: sunshine, long hikes, craft brews, and Jesus.
Imparted Joy LLC was born after publishing my first children's book, Liv's Seashells. From there, the momentum kept going. I realized my dream had come to life and that there are many more important messages to share as I continue the journey to write + illustrate.
The vision I foresee is to help guide other aspiring authors to find a way to self-publish their own messages of hope + joy.
