An entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, nurse, wife, mother & unshakable optimist dedicated to inspiring a better you.

I was born and raised in Southern California. I received a Bachelors Degree in Nursing from California State Dominguez Hills. In 2009, I began my journey of dedicating my life to serving others; I became an ICU Registered Nurse. I saw, listened, and learned about the value of life. I learned early on that regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status; we are all human beings and we all require the same air to breathe. And that care and compassion was a necessity in life especially in times of need.

Working as a nurse taught me that life can change in an instant and it is important to Be Grateful and Cherish the Moments because…


Values that children will learn:
  • Kindness
  • Respect
  • Happiness
  • Manners
  • Strength
  • Gratitude

My daughter loved this book. I love to see children being empowered and having books and character that look like them. The positve images and messages help her to understand important values in life and we were even able to discuss social issues like protests.Not to mention she loves to read! Awesome job!


This is a great book for children of any age in need of an inspirational message of affecting change in their community and world.
Job well done to the creators of this wonderful book! This book is exactly what is needed to set an example for the kinds of families our world needs more of:loving and supportive of children and their dreams


The illustrations are amazing! Bold and bright colors. The characters are so realistic. Throughout the book we see instances of kindness and community awareness, sprinkled with the issue of standing for what you believein. Definitely a must read for younger children, especially since the most important take away from this book is, “Even a child can help change the world”! -Susan
