I’m an activist, survivor of childhood trauma and I was catfished for 12 yearsI’m preparing to publish my autobiography. I’m a writer, freelance journalist, blogger and childbirth doula. I’m a Social Media addict and I love growth helping people increase their online traffic. I founded a pregnancy website in 2012 called Trimester Talk which gets over 500,000 views/month. This year I’m taking some time off to sort out my priorities and achieve some personal goals.

I regularly share my thoughts and experiences in my blog.

I’m going to change the world – watch me.

Writer

I have a degree in Journalism and I’m writing my first book about growing up with a mother who experienced severe bipolar psychotic episodes.

I hope it will help other children and relatives of mentally ill people.

Doula

I’m a qualified birth doula and I’m training as a postpartum doula & breastfeeding counsellor.

I’m passionate about women’s rights in childbirth because it’s an experience that effects them for a lifetime.

Online

I build a range of websites, work on social media, blog and occasionally work with clients and small businesses in a mentoring capacity.

Most of all, I enjoy writing online to help spread information I think is important.

About My Book

During my mother’s first psychotic episode, she almost succeeded in killing me. I still have scars to this day.

I wrote a brief version of the events surrounding my childhood which touches on the major events and emotions I experienced.
Currently I’m in the process of writing an autobiographical book about the years I spent with her and how my family and I dealt with her illness, as well as my experience with being catfished and groomed online as a teenager.
