Colleen was born on the central coast of California where she remains a lifelong resident. She married her teenage sweetheart in 1990 and has two beautiful children. She continues to "fight" and "survive" everyday! Embracing life and family in new ways all the time. Everything is a lesson to be learned.
Everyone has a story to tell and a journey to share. This is Colleen's voyage down her own path and her unique insight to the battles in life she has faced and the joys she celebrates everyday; always moving forward, looking back only to reminisce!
By sharing her experiences she shows her audiences and readers there is always "hope". From her search for her biological family, to her battle with cancer like the women in her family that came before, Colleen thoughtfully takes you through time and shares with you her inner most battles, fears and triumphs.
Her story is inspirational and will tug at your heart strings. But, hopefully it will open your hearts and your minds to another person's great effort to find reason and peace. It is a story worth telling and and she is a woman worth meeting.
Who she is...
"The ART of Surviving", due out in December of 2013
