Losing a breast is like losing part of your feminine identity, the same as when you lose your hair. I knew I couldn't change the world as far as Cancer was concerned but I knew I could help with wig and mastectomy fittings. All of my clients have a different story and that even makes it more special. Its rewarding when I see a women come into my shop feeling like there's no hope and see them leaving with smiles and confidence. I love what I do, its like the dream job, I never dreamed would happen. For the first time in my adult career, I can say that I thoroughly enjoy the work that I am doing and feel blessed to be a part of the lives of women who once again can flaunt their inner and outer beauty as warriors against Cancer!
I'm a single mother of an 11 year old son. I spend alot of time cheering him on with basketball and soccer year round. My mom is my motivating force. I asked her when I was young, “Why did you name me Hope?” Her reply “Hope for the future and to change lives”. That is why she is my biggest supporter. My sister and brother have showed me how to ride the road to success.
I enjoy Reading, Traveling, Exercising, Shopping and spending time with my family. I am an avid bargain shopper. I love finding an awesome deal even though many things I give away.
I'm stressed if I feel unorganized. I keep many list and calendars for my personal and professional life and rely on them to be accurate. My planner is my other Bible. I find balance in my quiet time and reading spiritual books. I do alot of brainstorming at night when most things around me are quiet.
How I find “me time”:
Although, it is very hard to get, you have to have "me" time, to get yourself centered. Enlist persons close to you that can remind you to take a time out.
