Hey, Scoliosis Sisters! If you are new here to my page, here’s a little insight to my life.
Diagnosed with Scoliosis at age 11, I learned I needed to wear a back brace for a year and a half in attempts to slow the progression of my curves.
Unfortunately, my curves worsened during my tween years. Later, I underwent 3 Spinal Fusion Surgeries for various reasons (2010, 2011, 2017).
If you wanna know all the deets of my scoliosis story, read all about it here! Spoiler alert, I broke a rod 🙃
Now, at age 23, armed with wisdom, experience, and compassion, I am ready to devote my life to aiding young women with the struggles of Scoliosis and Spinal Fusion through my blog!
In Spring 2019, I graduated from The University of Texas at San Antonio where I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies to become an elementary school teacher!
I made it all the way into student teaching where I realized God had other plans for me. He was not quiet about it either! So many blockades came in my way the second I started my clinical teaching.
One day in the fifth grade class I was teaching, I was reading a few books to see what the kids should read next. Then, it hit me like a bus. I realized I loved reading and writing and the only reason I wanted to teach was to spread that love… that PASSION for written word.
But I knew I was wasting my time with teaching and I walked out that day. I was so happy leaving that school and walking into my new life as a blogger, a writer, and so much more possibilities.
Thankfully, I had all my college credits in order, so I could still graduate and have a degree under my belt!
It was a rough transition going from having my whole life planned out as a teacher with stability…. to a blogger! I thought I was nuts to give all that up for the chance that I would be successful. But, I still, to this day, have persisted and pushed to achieve what the “impossible”.
I currently reside in the Texas Hill Country with my boyfriend Darrel and our cat Ophelia! I spend my days researching, planning, and writing in order to deliver you the best advice I can!

Secret Time! These are the exact techniques I use with my tutoring students when they are struggling with reading, fluency, and comprehension.

Going to a dispensary for the first time was not as easy or glamorous as media makes it out to be…
