That’s me, whether I’m talking with a family member or a frazzled mom at the grocery store.

And I’ll be the first to admit. I’m a piece of work like everyone else, but I’m a work in progress. I’m embracing who I am and my experiences, allowing Jesus to work it all together for my good.

It’s because I know God loves me I’m open to truth that promotes growth. And that’s what I want for you.

But embracing truth requires transparency—honesty with yourself and others. That’s not easy! I know.


When I sat down to write a book for moms, Jesus detoured me. God had something to say to us as daughters before talking to us as mothers. The DADDY’s Girl Forever book and the devotional are the dynamic duo for YOU—the woman with daddy issues who, through connection with God as father, discovers who she is and healthy relationships along the way.

If you’d like to dive deeper, I invite you to journal your adventure in DADDY God’s lavish love in DADDY’s Girl Forever The Study Journal.


Moms always have a special place in my heart, especially those of you who feel overwhelmed and insecure in the toughest, most rewarding job out there, period.

I’ve enjoyed serving you as a pediatrician and continued as a stay home mom because I uniquely appreciate your struggle from the child’s perspective and the mother’s.

My journey through childhood to motherhood has not been a walk in the park.

And it’s my passion to see you persevere with intention and without apology.

It’s what I share on my podcast, Motherhood Unmasked, on Apple, Spotify or your favorite podcast platform—even So, I invite you to join me. Because the hand that rocks the cradle—impacts generations!


Being from the Bronx, you’d be right to assume I speak my mind, but I prefer sharing what’s useful—because opinions help no one. It’s what Jesus says that matters. And I use His words to challenge the narratives that keep you from His best for you.

If you’re looking for someone who tells you the truth flavored with love because she wants to see you be your best. Then I’m your girl. Let’s walk this out together.
