I'm a small business owner and parent to a child with special needs and unique challenges. My passion and profession is safety and self defense training. I especially enjoy taking high level training and translating it for mothers and children.
Helping and empowering others is what does it for me. I love to do that through providing martial arts training. But after learning the benefits and limitations of using martial arts in real life self defense situations I began a journey seeking solutions that turned into a career and adding self defense training. I specialize in unique, reality based training, including nonviolent solutions, training approrpiate for persons who have experienced trauma and/or domestic violence, training for families living with violence due to mental health issues, and KeySlinger Self Defense Training.
I am active and rarely sit still. I love hiking, visiting the library, bird watching, appreciating nature, enjoying great friends, hanging out at Starbucks, researching our endless curiosities. I have a pretty impeccable diet - not because we necessarily want to but because we have ridiculous food allergies. I am gluten, corn and soy free (not just a little bit but COMPLETELY). All of my soaps, beauty products, and other needs are pretty natural - because of more allergies and sensitivities. I reach towards minimalism and focus on relationships and experiences.
I LOVE sharing information that took me hours and hours of researching and trial and error to attain and perfect. Please feel free to ask me about cooking and recipes and/or food and additives; ADHD, ODD and SPD; making toothpaste and/or finding alternate, natural remedies for OTC items; living with active alcoholism; marketing - over the phone, door to door/ business to business, or events. I am by no means an expert in the topics above; however, I have experience and years of obsessive reading and learning.
I love trading services, and am excited to find this site and for the opportunities ahead!
