My story begins with my mother, Nancy. Following a traumatic childhood and adolescence, she had a personal breakthrough, facilitated by a teacher who could envision my mother’s untapped potential. Her healing and transformation broke cycles of abuse and began a new generational legacy of positivity and resilience, starting with me. I grew up as a character in her redemptive story and at only 13 years old, I started empowering others to own their raw history and author the future they dream of, like my mother did. That’s how TIPPS was born, although it didn’t have a formal name until years later.
