She is the expert relationship contributor for Motherly, and an international speaker and presenter.

"• I made a decision of what’s more important to me- is it my self-expression and feeling like I’m on purpose and I am bringing what is within me out? Or is it to be loved and liked and fit in and be approved of by people? And you sort of have to make a decision of what’s more important because if you keep making other people’s love of you more important, then you will hold back a lot until you have something perfect and exactly right, versus if my intention and purpose is to be fully self-expressed I will do that when it’s messy and unattractive because that’s my commitment. I know I feel alive when I express myself. And I’m almost starting to enjoy the raw, vulnerable feeling of when you press play and you’re sitting there in the vulnerability hangover as Brene Brown says, and I’m coming to enjoy that because it makes me feel alive."

Truth bomb: "It’s one of the most terrifying things ever to be truly unmasked and wildly vulnerable and sexual and emotional in front of another human being and not know if it’s going to work out even if they’re supposedly all the things on paper and in real life. I think that’s one of the scariest things ever, to be naked in front of another human being, on all levels."
