There are three things I love.

*I love growing and improving – even though it is difficult sometimes.
*I love singing & playing music for special life events – even when it can be intense
*I love sharing my weight loss journey to help others.  I know how it can be – the highs and the lows.


We serve best, we live best,  when we are strong in our bodies and art.

Joy and Peace,

The Power of No & School Lunch
