I'm also a Co-Author in this amazing book from the National Workplace Bullying Coalition, “Stand Up, Speak Out Against Workplace Bullying: Your Guide to Survival and Victory Through 23 Real Life Testimonies. The coalition has collected stories from people who have successfully navigated workplace bullying.

Our goal is to help other bullying targets discover tools and principles they can use in their own life. Our stories are filled with emotion, vivid images, and a clear path to resolution.

But, I'm most recognized for referring to myself as a, "Kickass Survivor" of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. This is a term I created back in 2015 when I left my abusive environments (home and work)...

Keep reading below to hear about my story and learn why I started the, "It's OK to Tell My Story" Movement...

IT'S OK TO TELL MY STORY!

 

Why Did I Start This Movement...

I started the, "It's OK to Tell My Story" Movement based upon my personal experience of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Workplace Bullying. Once I realized it really was OK (safe) to tell someone what happened to me, I could get help because they believed me and become successful after the abuse...I wanted to help others find their way out, experience the freedom...and stay out!

My Story...

From the age of 8 years old, I experienced molestation and sexual assaults from family members and school mates. While serving in the USAF, I was sexually assaulted by a co-worker during a deployment. Over the span of 20 years, between two different marriages (traditional and common law) I experienced Domestic Violence; psychological (verbal/emotional), physical, financial and sexual. The final assault incident which changed my life was an incident of being choked by the hands of someone I loved, tried to love and wanted to love.

For many years, I felt ashamed, embarrassed, humiliated, alone, angry, betrayed, stressed, etc. I lost my home, business, money, friends/family and had various medical visits along the journey. I thought everything that happened to me was my fault, I must had done something to deserve it, I felt God abandoned me and that was the best version of life I could expect to live.

Even after I received help from the police, attorney, abuse programs, etc. One thing remained consistent...I always felt alone, unaccomplished, and misunderstood. I didn't know how to love, trust or exist in a healthy intimate relationship or how to have a sustainable friendship with family, friends or business associates...Sound familiar?

But...I Survived!!

Because I survived all of that "Hot Ass Mess" as I call it...I started to refer to myself as a Kickass Survivor because I fought my way out kicking "literally" in some instances. I wanted to create a better life for myself, my son, have my own financial independence and help spread awareness about this evil of abuse.

In other words, I wanted to be in control of my life and not allow the abuse to control me any longer. It wasn't easy and it took years to leave my abusive environment. And, living as a survivor of abuse is a daily struggle with good days and bad days.

As you can see, here I am years later-highly successful in my professional life, increasing my personal finances, volunteering helping to stop abuse, encouraging my son to find his dreams and I'm even having fun dating. It doesn't mean the triggers don't occur...It means I discovered how to take control so I could Live, Laugh and Love. And now... I Kickass Doing Just That!!

But How Did I Become a Kickass Survivor...

Testimonials

“This book is revolutionary, a game changer that is altering lives of domestic violence victims in the AF one day at a time…” Jerome Ellis Seymour Johnson AFB Base, Family Advocacy Manager

"Having a friend in an abusive relationship, I often wondered "WHY"? Why does she stay? Why won't she leave? This book answered those questions for me. I never looked at it the way that things were presented in this book. It was an eye-opener. At times, it made me mad, angry, etc, but I kept on reading, but I must admit it was not due to the writing, but the situations. That question popped up again, "WHY"? To the author, thank you. Thank you for giving me a way to look at domestic abuse in another way. No, I still do not feel it is right, but I can look at things a bit differently now and understand the WHY question better than before..." Amazon review- Vnunez-msluv2read

"I couldn't put this book down. It felt like I was having a conversation with a friend. I gained insight on how to respond if approached by a loved one in a similar situation." Amazon Review-Denise

When I Started My Journey to Become an Author...

it was a journey of spiritual growth and a self-awareness transformation.

and something really neat happened along the way...I heard God tell me that I needed to share the lessons I had learned with others.

Why?

Pretty simple really...God allowed me to survive domestic violence and sexual assault incidents. Those should be enough reasons...you would think.

But, I ignored them initially...I just sat by the pool drinking margaritas watching life go by.

Then it happened...a Trigger!

When you go thru something as traumatic as abuse and assault...there's no way to not come out without triggers.

During one of my trigger episodes...I prayed (verbal/written) for God to help me get past this and to not allow others to suffer this way.

Writing was my sweet spot..my quite place, my calm...a time that I controlled.

Thru writing, I realized God had bestowed upon me a true talent...an ability to affect positive change on others lives.

It was no longer time to chillax by the pool...I had a Godly mission to fulfill.

I had a purpose!!

I believe God has called me to bridge the gap between individuals and businesses with more awareness regarding domestic violence and other forms of abuse such as sexual assault.

Since writing my first book, I've had so many people tell how the books has either changed their life directly or they've gain more insight and understanding of how victims/survivors view domestic violence.

I've had business owners approach me saying, they learned a lot about how to deal with a bad situation and remain professional thru it all.

But Wait it Gets Better...

There was more than just telling my story to help others...

I wanted to help you...

  • Kickass past the abuse...
