I used to be born and raised within the enigma referred to as “The Big Easy.” There, rooted alongside the banks of the good Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I used to be conscripted on all issues pertaining to human nature.  I’m the quintessential southern lady, that’s to say, I defy most may by no means precisely outline what that label actually represents.  Brined beneath sea degree the place one respects; the haunts lingering about, the power of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I do know what it’s to belong to an organically numerous tradition.

Early on in life, my profession path serpentined and led to temporary stints of dwelling different experiences as I indulged my passions for portray, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My younger experiences advanced my function and honed my intuitive abilities and I grew to become a Medical Professional specializing in psychological well being with a give attention to youngster/adolescent wants.

Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel tradition, apathy ,and ignorance will solely groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your particular person proper granted not by authorities -and should at all times be protected, championed, and defended.
