About the Artist
Single mom of 3. 2 boys, one who is USAF RESERVES and who has deployed 3 times, and a daughter, US ARMY, PURPLE HEART, DEPLOYED TO HEAVEN. I do grief journaling thru poetry and my memes...sometimes I put them together and call them my "Grief Graphics"™...it is how I have gotten through the death of my soldier daughter who after a cascade of epic failures TO her, including lack of diagnosis and treatment to a Traumatic Brain Injury, from an IED landing ON the driver's door of her 52 wheeled convoy truck.... and being stigmatized and hazed as she suffered the horrible symptoms of the demons of war. She took her life on Active duty while in her dream job on Oct 3, 2011. I do this for her and all of the battle buddies who have served our country. I have become an Activist /Speaker on TBI PTSD SUICIDE & STIGMA IN THE MILITARY. 22 Veterans and 1 Active Duty Soldier Die FROM SUICIDE each day. I have a BS in Sec. Ed with concentration on Physical and Health Education from Central Michigan University.
