I grew up competitively figure skating my whole life. After high school, I went to figure skate for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, so I was on an eight-month contract. When I got home from my contract, I decided I didn’t want to be too behind in school, and it was time to start college. My best friend went to Florida Atlantic University and happened to have her house open for the summer, due to her roommates going home, and it felt perfect. I stayed there for the summer and started at FAU, and loved it. My whole life, I have been between the fashion industry and the medical field, however, FAU offered nothing for those interested in fashion and I figured I could go to fashion school with a medical degree, but I can’t go to med school with a fashion degree. So I stuck it out and became a bio major. Read more>>

In 2013 I had made the decision to leave my successful career as a Master Stylist at a busy well-known salon in Boca Raton and become a full-time mother to my then six-year-old daughter and one-year-old son. I had been a stylist there for over ten years. I was burned out, needed a change, and wanted to focus more on my family. Both of my children are IVF miracles. I went through so much to have them, and I felt like I was missing out on so much. Read more>>

Are You Okay Inc was founded in November of 2018. It started from me fasting for something personal and asking God to bless me with a door that I needed opened. My fast instead instantly turns in to me fasting for others in need. It was during my fast that I realized that the season we were in during the holidays is when you have tons of individuals that battle through depression, anxiety, stress and suicidal thoughts. The vision became even clearer as the weeks surpassed. Read more>>
