Prior to Asage Solutions, I worked for over 15 years in Family Violence Prevention and Education. I loved what I did, but after some time, I did not love the way that I did it. It had become stressful and with all the additional organizational demands, it started to take its toll on me. I always wanted to take my experience and expertise and use it to help organizations or individuals but with the flexibility to do it my way.
I wanted to be able to have an impact on my community and individuals without having to be subject to a frame work that did not fit my life. For years I thought about starting my own business, but I worried that I might not have what it takes. I once shared my dream with a good friend who helped me believe that I already had everything I needed.
I had spent many years advocating for others, then one day I had an opportunity to help someone very close to me. At the end of her challenging experience, she told me that I saved her life. Her words will forever stick with me because it reminds me that what I do can not only be life changing, but also lifesaving. I believe that everything I have done and everyone I have helped along the way, was purposefully preparing me to help save someone who is so precious to me. I want others to feel this way.
I am very passionate about educating and empowering women and girls to recognize and experience healthy relationships and personal safety. I have always known that if I can put myself in position to plant small seeds that can help women and girls blossom into the most whole, healthy and safest versions of themselves…then I would fulfill my purpose. I am excited about the possibilities that exist for me and my community. My hope that I can create change by sharing wisdom and gaining a deeper understanding of the challenges we face in supporting one another.
