Welcome to my website ~ Phoenyx Rising ~ I am a Twin, a sister, daughter, friend, mom, nana, Chihuahua mommy, biker, Survivor, advocate, activist, lover of nature and so much more. I am grateful for each sunrise and every breath I take. I am strong and wise, courageous and beautiful. My moccasins have journeyed many trails to this amazing place I stand today.
Like the legendary Phoenix, I too have been reborn…Reborn from the ashes of my pain into the beautiful woman I was meant to be ~ Today, today I am free and happier than I have ever been ~
In 2005 I attended the FCADV (Florida Coalition on Domestic Violence) workshop at Sunrise of Pasco Inc. and received my CORE COMP Certificate. It was an amazing workshop filled with intense learning and knowledge shared. I also took another 6 hour course to supplement the rest of the hours and fulfilled the rest of the required training….Although the CORE COMP CERTIFICATE is good only in DV/SA shelters it helps having had the courses for personal enrichment with my background experience as a survivor…I will be taking further courses that correlate to the areas of my advocacy as they become available.
CORE COMPETENCY TRAINING: provides twenty-four hours of the thirty-hours of training required of certified domestic violence center advocates and volunteers in order to qualify for victim/advocate privileged communications under Florida law. Topics to be addressed include: foundations of the battered women’s movement, survivor- focused advocacy, complexities of advocacy, domestic violence and it’s impact on children and self-care
