"Dance Because You Can. I love that Message. Keep Inspiring the World".

Does this sound familiar?
I wish somebody understood what I’m REALLY going through.
I want to let go of this trauma for GOOD.
I am NOT a victim of my circumstance or health condition.
Look, life with a chronic condition or massive trauma is hard. Let’s just state the truth. BUT, it doesn’t have to rob you of your success and JOY. I get it. I live with a chronic condition. My body is deformed. People look at me funny. And I smile and nod with appreciation and a wink!
Why I’m here for you.
I was a dancer. My dream was to dance professionally and tour the world and even be a rock star (except I couldn’t sing). I also have type 1 diabetes since the age of 4. Compounded by an eating disorder that caused me to become legally blind at age 21. I had to stop driving. My dance career stopped before it started.
My First Re-Invention.
Young and naïve and lost I found solace supporting other kids who, like me, had diabetes. It was my first journey Transforming Trauma into Triumph.
My dance-based advocacy program, The SWEET ENUFF Movement, went on to be a 2013 Top 5 Finalist for First Lady Michelle Obama’s ‘End Childhood Obesity Challenge.’
Did it stop the pain of giving up my dream? NO. Did it give me a new dream and a new mission? YES.
And then THIS happened!
(You almost won’t believe it it’s THAT crazy)
Just when I thought I was getting my life together at 39 (I’m a late bloomer), the unimaginable happened.
I was crossing the street in New York City and I was HIT and RUN OVER by a New York City express BUS.
Yes, I was LITERALLY hit by a bus. I was pinned under the tire. My right leg was crushed.
Long story short, my leg was nearly amputated. 20 surgeries later it has been rebuilt. I was told I may never walk again.
While pinned under that bus tire I made a determination in my heart. ‘If I survive the night, there will be a Victory Dance.
I DID my Victory Dance. So can YOU.
On June 15, 2017, I literally danced again onstage with my professional company The Victory Dance Project.
Through the process, I figured a few things out. I created a system to help YOU Transform Trauma into Triumph.
I am grateful to have an award-winning book ‘Dance Because You Can.’ I am even more grateful my journey back to the stage has become an Internationally Acclaimed Documentary Feature film.
My goal is now to support as many people as I can to lead the happiest lives possible even WITH our obstacles. (No, they don’t go away). Together we can make ‘The Impossible Possible with the Power of Movement.’
If I did it, so can YOU.
