I am a southern California girl who is ready to share with the world what it is like to find out you have herpes. I never thought I would be in the position to be sharing my life stories about having an STD. But here I am completely vulnerable and naked.

One day it dawned on me; I had to tell my story about living with herpes. The thought of sharing this story was equally exciting and terrifying to me because I remember every single detail of the moments leading up to and following my diagnosis.

I will never forget where I was, what I was wearing and where I was headed when my doctor called me. After I had hung up the phone, I began to shake. I was scared shitless. All of my happiness, desires, and goals immediately vanished. Sound familiar?

If you want to know how I handled the following days after my diagnosis, I wrote it up in a mini-chapter for you here. Click here to download the things I wish I had and what I wish I had known when I was diagnosed.

If you want to learn more you can click here to download a FREE ebook sharing with you what I wished I had known when I was diagnosed with Herpes.  Also, I go more into depth with my story.

All of your feelings are normal, natural and they all can be transformed. I made the decision to move forward with my life and learned how to cope, heal and live with the virus. I made a choice to not be a victim to herpes.  

Today I help other people who find themselves in the same situation I was in on that day. I have a podcast called Life with Herpes where I interview experts on the subject and answer crucial questions from my listeners. I teach others who are living with Herpes to adapt their lives, relationships, and definitions of wellness around their diagnoses.

To do this, I not only use my own personal experiences with Herpes, but I also use my experiences in corporate America. I was in the real estate and mortgage world for a decade and in 2015 I made the leap to creating an online business.  I am the host of the former podcast show called, Sex, Money, and Food, the podcast, Life With Herpes, a blogger and last but not least an entrepreneur.  

I truly want you to feel embraced, secure, and comfortable. That is how I wanted to feel when I was first diagnosed. I’m here to teach you everything that there is to know about the virus.  From the 101 on the HSV virus to the home remedies, the prescriptions and much much more. In other words, I want to tell the truth about what it is like to really live with herpes. I promise, your life is not over.

Your life is not a stigma. I know this to be true because I was and am no longer in fear of that.

I am an only child, but my parents call the dog who is a standard poodle named Ruby Rose my sister.

 

I am a University of Arizona graduate, bear down to my fellow alumni. I live in San Diego, California with my fiance Bill, a.k.a. The love of my life and my everything!

 

I play golf, but I am nowhere close to being a scratch golfer. I am a yogi and in the last year have started doing bootcamp, and it really improved my yoga practice, my golf game, and my triceps.  

 

 

 

I grew up ice skating and I still ice skate, toe pick.

My favorite food is a burger cooked rare with a fried egg, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onions, lettuce, tomato, Heinz 57 and mayo. I love cheers’ing with Bill every night with a glass of  Zinfandel.

I have lived all over the world, California, Arizona, New York City and Madrid. Even Though San Diego is the best city in world New York City is magical to me. My favorite place to travel to is Los Cabos.

I absolutely love every day, and I am grateful for the life I live.
