Hi there! Welcome. I’m a born and raised Cali girl who moved to the Mid-West in July of 2015. Together with my Jamaican hubby whom I met at Berkeley in the 90’s, I am raising 3 multi-racial (JaMexican) kids in St. Louis, Missouri. In addition to writing this blog and parenting, I also work as a non-profit fundraising consultant. My passions include women’s issues, girl power, social justice, multi-racial, homeless/food bank, education and the arts.

As the oldest of 5 girls and from a large Mexican-American family, I enjoy writing about my childhood and the many experiences and characters that were a part of that time.

Since moving to the Mid-West, I have found myself drawn into listening to other people’s stories and learning about whatever journey they might be on.

I think a million little journeys make up a person’s lifetime and my desire is for this space to encourage you along your own journey whatever that might be.

Come back and visit often!
