20 years ago I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. On July 15th, 1996 I made the decision to live a sober life and have been sober from alcohol and cocaine since then. .
13 years ago I was working in the sex industry, booking women internationally to work in the sex industry and was about to start a pornography production company. The fall of 2002 I walked away from it all. I worked 2 different jobs and took an extreme pay cut to get out of the industry. .
On April 27th 2003, I saw that my heart was never at peace, I always felt there was something missing, and I finally understood grace and the cross and gave my life to Jesus. I now have a peace that only comes from Him.
The summer of 2007 I knew there were women and men working in the sex industry that needed support that I wished I had while I was in the industry and I founded BeLoved – a non profit that supports and cares for sex industry workers. It now provides care for industry workers in multiple cities and states and has supported 1000’s of industry workers. Plus – we have since expanded to serve ALL women – exciting!
November 17th, 2011 I found out I had breast cancer. I made the decision to treat it aggressively with a lumpectomy, chemo, a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I am now cancer free for 4 years.
In February of 2015 I was at a low point of health. 50 lbs overweight and it was causing back issues. I lost 22 lbs so far and feel stronger and healthier than I have in years. .
I recently started going back to school for my divinity degree and stepping back into music after a hiatus. It’s never too late to start a new chapter in your life!
You are much stronger than you believe. You can overcome whatever is happening in your life. Fight for the life YOU dream about. You do not have to settle for less. #life #love #staugustine #nashville #beach #travel #adventure #florida #healthy #fitness #miami #summer #foodie #surf #surfing #waves #ocean #mermaid #organic #simplelife #lifeaftertheindustry #mermaidhair
