I have been a stay at home mom to my two daughters and son for going on ten years. Itâ€™s been an incredibly hard and rewarding journey that opened my eyes to a lot about myself and others. I enjoy free-lance writing, photography, community relations, events and social networking.
I want to make a difference in the world through my two dreams. One dream is to have a career in community relations to bring opportunities to under privileged children. The second is to open a community center for our most vulnerable youth.

I am not a statistic. I should be one. I should be caught in the cycle of poverty, addiction and crime. Growing up I had an incarcerated father who struggled with alcoholism. I was raised by a single mother who became victim to the power of prescription pills. I felt voiceless. I felt alone and […]
One of the ways my family enjoys the outdoors is to spend a day on a bike path. You donâ€™t have to just ride one way and ride back. The bike paths connect us to many places to discover and beautiful sights to see. Rhode Islandâ€™s bike paths lead to parks, playgrounds, beaches, nature trails, downtown areas and carousels. The possibilities are many and the fun is mostly free.
