In a fascinating way, Chloe stumbled on an unusual intervention using the power of imagination to pull her through and out of intense and horrific situations. Today she is a survivor with a realistically positive attitude, and a voice of hope for the future.
My Music Passion
Here’s how I breathe during the day or night. Whether I’m sitting at my piano, or between sessions at conferences when I scan the place and find a piano even if it’s slightly out of tune, or if I spot a piano in a hotel lobby. This is where you’ll find me, transcendently lost in my world. Depending on how I feel, my fingers respond as it touches the keys. Then the music emerges from the song in my heart.
My Golf Passion
I am an avid golfer, not a scratch golfer. There is a county golf course about two minutes from home. Guess where you can find me when I’m not lost in my music world? On the golf course where every shot teaches me a lesson in life. My swing depicts the state of my mind. The more relaxed I am, the easier I swing. Addressing the ball helps me to pause and reflect. The more I reflect, the more in tune I am with myself. Being on the golf course brings me total joy and tranquility.
Being A Mom
My favorite role is being a mom to my son Jethro, and a doggie mom to Apollo my Jack Russell, who keeps me entertained with his colorful energy.
