I am a white cis-gendered woman, a parent, a married person, a home owner in Otoe-Missouria, and an entrepreneur.
I am a survivor of generational and childhood trauma, including the death of my infant brother, my parents' divorce, my mother's 15-year battle with cancer. I am the child of an alcoholic who is the child of an alcoholic.
I am the beneficiary of generational wealth and status that I did nothing to earn or deserve. I am a college degree holder and have traveled internationally.
I acknowledge the privileges I carry in my person and the impact they have on my thoughts, views, and business practices. I am committed to unlearning oppressive beliefs rooted in white supremacy and working to make reparations and peace in my community. I welcome feedback and correction.
