Meet The Doodle Lady
Who would have thought doodling saved my life! But it did. I stumbled into that creative world quite by accident after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Over time it became my constant companion. Not only did I have a fun and creative outlet, but I learned about the importance of trusting a moment in time by letting go of my desire to control the outcome.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and received a B.S. in physical therapy from the University of Southern California and began work, near-by, at Orthopaedic Hospital, where I met my husband. After a number of years, I became a full-time mother and devoted my spare time to philanthropic projects.
But in the midst of my seemingly ordinary life, everything changed in an instant. All it took was one suspicious mammogram and my world, the way I knew it, changed forever. Yet…the good news is I haven’t looked back with any regret since.
I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned and hopefully inspiring you to journey with me along the way.
