Life sure can knock you down, spin you around and then spit you out!

Cynthia uses her own personal experiences of coping with loved ones living with mental illness, parenting children with special needs, and becoming widowed as a young mother to offer encouragement, resilience skills and a unique perspective on how to handle LIFE.

There are 3 fundamentals for her coaching and training foundation: positive pschology, emotional intelligence and PAP (patience, acceptance, perspective), a model which she created to cope positively in becoming emotionally resilient, mentally strong and spiritually sound. 

She uses her voice to advocate and educate cultures and communities through public speaking.  Contact Cynthia today if you are interested in having her speak to your group.
