Life has not gone as I planned but just like those little lives that enter our home there is so much beauty in the brokenness of my story.  God is somehow using me and my family, ordinary people, to reveal his grace and desires to our community.

I’m a bio mama to two teens Isiah & Nevaeh, an adoptive mama to a wild toddler Dominik and a wife to a great man Jason for almost 16 years.  I’m awkward, loud, and have a weird laugh.  I love deeply and have a no bs meter.  I love Jesus, wine and Reese’s.

Born and raised in CA my childhood was far from the norm.  I’m a child abuse survivor.  For over 16 years my father physically and sexually abused me.  At 16 I planned on killing myself but that’s when a complete stranger in my community stepped in and rescued me. 

About Geronimo Project

Geronimo Project is a platform that started with the community we live in questioning what the foster care process really looked like.  The more I shared the more people wanted to support, invest and help change the conversation about what kids and families are walking through in our communities.

Geronimo Project was birthed out of a letter of prayer I received from a friend that had been praying over me.  God gave her a word for me-Geronimo.  His message, her words……He wanted me to jump-straight into my fear and when I jumped into that fear it would be the thing that would set me free.

Everything about foster care is equal parts good and bad, joy and sorrow, beauty and brokenness.  I wanted to shine a light on our journey and what saying “YES” to foster care really looked like in our community so I started Geronimo-Project

Geronimo Project provides an inside view of what foster care often looks like.  Topics like why you can’t give your foster child a haircut unless approved by the caseworker to larger topics like assessments, case planning, and reunification. Not all foster journeys are the same so we provide networking opportunities for foster parents to connect, along with community education events.

Telling people who I am has always been a weird thing for me.I've always felt like I needed to give you the good sales pitch, hiding the women, the lemon under the hood.Reading you and telling you about the things that would connect you and me.It's part of my survival story.Kn...

About a year ago as my husband and I sat in church listening to a great message the fire alarm went off in the main sanctuary. My husband and I turned to each other and grinned from ear to ear. We both knew it was a false alarm you could say we had that parent instinct kick in...
