"I love to spread hope to adults and children as it is a force for doing good and helping others."

Share an experience that has shaped who you are today.
I am an experienced attorney, having litigated in many trials. I also served as a judge for 6 1/2 years. During my judgeship, I presided over many different types of cases, from simple small claims to complex multimillion dollar litigation. I also presided over a variety of criminal cases from minor misdemeanors to major crimes such as first degree murder and rape. I love working with children and created a nonprofit foundation As the Stars of the Sky Foundation which promotes literacy. I wrote 5 faith-based children's books based on our favorite holidays to teach about the true history of these special days - Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm a mother of two sons and was a caregiver to my late husband who suffered from Parkinson's Disease. After being a widow for 8 years, I remarried last year and am thoroughly enjoying this stage of my life, hoping to continue to inspire others.

What makes your podcast unique?
My passion and desire is to encourage and inspire hope in others by sharing true stories that involve people in a wide variety of circumstances. Each guest shares his/her own challenges and how they were able to overcome them. Although we in the US are so privileged, we suffer from a lack of hope. Today, we are too often inundated with stories that negatively impact us, hindering the hope that we have for successful futures - for ourselves and our children. Unfortunately, this also adversely affects our everyday lives, as we strive to build stronger families, better relationships, excel at work, improve our health, and leave our children a better world. I possess a heart to convince you to wake up each morning with a sense of hope and awe for the new day. You will be convinced that you can indeed improve your life and contribute to making the world a better place.
