About Parent With Purpose#ParentWithPurpose


I started this website back in 2014 and a year later our Youtube channel to help parents cope with the everyday stressful aspects of parenting.

As you can imagine, we had been through some normal/not-so-normal things having 4 teenagers in our home.

Since finding out about my daughter being trafficked, I now dedicate a great deal of time and resources to educating anyone who will listen on this topic all in the hopes that we can prevent this from happening to another family.


A mom of 4, all now adults.
I have spent my whole parenting journey learning that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did.
 I am forever grateful to my children for this journey, which has made me the woman I am today.

Following Tim McGraw’s advice, and helping the next one in line so they will not have this happen to their families.


Although her journey was a rough one, she is not only an amazing daughter & friend, she come out the other side of some very traumatic experiences stronger, sweeter and healthy in both mind and body.

It is with her permission and blessing that I tell her story in the hopes of helping other parents learn and be able to prevent trafficking or abuse to become part of their life stories.
