I Want to Help

One of my gifts is helping individuals experiencing anxiety... Anxiety can be an unknown, overwhelming, scary feeling.

 

I want to help individuals understand it, navigate through it, and live without fear.

Why I Want To Help

I've been there! I have a story too. I remember having my first panic attack (of course - if you have had one, you don't forget). It pops up out of the blue and you don't know what it is! How scary is that? It was a part of my life for many years. I want to help others to understand and be equipped with knowledge instead of suffering through worries and doubts.

 

Several years later, my oldest of four children, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. I had to use the tools I learned to keep my own anxieties from getting out of control to help him fight the fight of his life. After three years he was officially cancer-free. We came out as a stronger family with rock-solid faith.

 

Most people are surprised to know about my past anxiety issues. I'm confident and willing to try new things. I've always been a go-with-the-flow kinda gal but on the inside, I was uncertain and had anxious thoughts. I learned to navigate through it and love helping others do the same.

One of my gifts is helping individuals experiencing anxiety... Anxiety can be an unknown, overwhelming, scary feeling. I want to help individuals understand it, navigate through it, and live without fear.

Through the years I have helped several teens and adults who have struggled. I have had the desire to help others overcome the fear associated with anxiety. I had too many commitments to make this full-time.  I always want to give 100% of myself.  Since my presidency with the Suburban Service League just ended, (an organization that helps those in need), and I am an empty-nester, I can fulfill my passion. 

 

I've spent the majority of my adult life helping others.  Below are a few more of my leadership and community positions.

 

I have been the President, along with other board positions on the Suburban Service League for 7 years. The SSL raises funds to give back to those in need in the south suburbs of Chicago.

I am also trained and certified as a Holy Yoga Teacher.  I've had the pleasure of teaching yoga for several years out of my home. I currently teach on an as-needed basis for individual or group requests. I am a founder of the KidsWork Children's Museum in Frankfort, IL. I owned my own business, Rockin' Waistwear, for 12 years.  I was the President of Clusters, Mothers of Multiples, in southland Chicago. An organization to help mothers navigate life with twins, triplets, and more! I served on the Executive Board for 3 years. 

I also served on the Exec Board of the Education Foundation for my children's school district for several years.
