As a result of being born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, I’ve single-handedly and silently endured this condition and chronic pain for my whole life.
My understanding about what it’s like to navigate these waters has inspired me to write Silent Courage and share what I have learned on my journey.
Silent Courage is available on Amazon (paperback), Barnes & Noble, Nook, Kindle, and SmashWords. To complement my book, I have designed creative workshops, classes, and a variety of events regarding pain and wellness. Let’s plan something together. Contact me for more information and availability.

As a watercolor artist, I created my book’s cover. The painting is available to purchase as a print in My Artwork. A portion of the sales will go to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute to fund research and provide education.

I have been a long-time fan of this publication, and it’s exciting to now grace their pages. Check out page 6 for the story on how I, along with a few creative and courageous others, use art to manage our chronic pain.
