Life, Afterlife, and the ROad to Recovery
My story is an unusual one. While I've shared my journey as TV network executive turned self-taught carpenter and furniture designer who won a deal on ABC's Shark Tank and built an internationally known brand from my garage called Mod Mom Furniture. I'm now coming forward about my healing journey from childhood sexual abuse which includes sudden onset mediumship at age 36, partnerships with law enforcement officers around the country working on cold cases that involve children who endured sexual abuse, an implosion of my 18-year-marriage and a three-year relationship with an abusive man who turned out to be a predator. I was granted a restraining order by a court of law in Arizona in 2017, three months after the relationship ended. My husband and I reunited in August of 2017 with a much better understanding of the effects of repressed abuse. I was able to put the puzzle pieces together and understand how intuition helped me survive and heal from both the past childhood abuse and the abuse I endured as an adult. I'm sharing my experiences here in hopes it will help others who have experienced similar and are struggling to heal and step out of the cycle of abuse.
