Hi! Thanks for visiting my website! I’m Crunchy Tubie Mama. When I’m not writing, I’m usually busy taking care of my amazing son, cuddling with my sweet doggie, watching old X-Files episodes, surfing the internet in search of tasty, plant-based recipes, wasting time on Facebook, or blogging.
In 2014, my son, Bradley was born nearly 3 months early with a congenital heart defect. He spent the first 165 days of his life in the hospital enduring a myriad of serious complications, and he spent most of the first year of his life in the hospital.
On this journey, I learned so much about courage, bravery, and heroism. I discovered the courage I had within myself and observed the amazing, heroic efforts of his medical team. I also witnessed Bradley’s unfathomable resilience and strength through incredible challenges.
It was a life changing journey, and it inspired my book series, The Quest, as I strive to help others find the courage and strength within. You can learn more about in the video below.
I’m often asked how I came up with the pen name Crunchy Tubie Mama. The best way to answer that question is to share my son’s story with you in this video below.
A diet with lots of plant foods changed my son’s life! Now, in addition to helping others find their courage and strength, I’m on a mission to help children everywhere (and adults, too!) to eat more plant foods.
I would love to hear from you! Please drop me a line any time through my contact page here.
