I am an Enneagram 2 which is “The Helper” and so everything I do in my business is to help you succeed, be it painting a beautiful piece of furniture, finding the right paint color, deciding on the right kitchen gadget or suggesting ways to be more organized.

Just a quick summary of who I am: I was born in South Africa and moved to the USA in 2009 with my husband and 2 sweet kiddos.

I had Breast Cancer in 2013. I have written my story which I’m hoping you will find helpful and encouraging.

I also wrote about exercising after my diagnosis.

If you want to be inspired, I have written a list of 50 things I am hoping to achieve by the time I am 50. It is one of my most pinned pins!! I love a good list, hope you do to.

I always love hearing from you, so please email me at [email protected] and follow me on Pinterest
