I am an entrepreneur, author, writer and speaker. Being an entrepreneur, writer and speaker has allowed me to pursue my passions in life. I am a Mom to three amazing children and married to my best friend. I am also the owner of Pinkys Got Purses. I have been writing for over 25 years. I have written several books, including children's books, short stories, songs and poems. I knew at a young age my life was a little different. I am a twin and my twin sister Jennifer and I were born 1 minute apart. At birth there was major complications. My sister was born with the umbilical cord around her neck 7 times. This cut off the oxygen to her brain and caused her to be blind and physically and mentally handicapped. I started writing at a young age. I wrote my first poem at the age of 15 called Jennifer's smile. It was published in a book and this just encouraged me more to write. So I did, one poem, one song and one story at a time. Sharing my story and owning my own business has been a blessing to me. My mission is to spread love and share Jennifer's Smile one story at a time.
In 2012 I started Pinky Got Purses, an online boutique. My love for handbags and purses was just the beginning. During the time of growing my business I began to write a lot more. I have always been a writer but now was writing a lot more then ever before. During my 10 plus years of Pinkys Got Purses I learned a lot about the business and myself. So Between 2014 and 2017 I wrote two books that would change so many things about my life. During this time I grew as a person, mother and wife. In January 2024 I stepped down from a huge boutique to pursue and work harder on my writing. I know all good things must come to an end and I knew it was time. I still have a love for handbags and purses and maybe one day I will go back but for now I will write, speak and create.
