Trotting Through Trauma

I currently offer programming using my horse "The Perfect Storm". Storm is no stranger to trauma and stress.  On July 30, 2015, I rescued Storm from the kill pen where she was waiting to be shipped to be slaughtered. Storm's journey is one of resilience, reformation, triumph and redemption.  She has experienced trauma, overcome trust issues and lacked emotional control.  Storm is now a certified police horse and an ambassador for rescue transformation.  She has literally " trotted through trauma" and because of her past, she is very intune with human energy and emotion.  Storm is now able to help humans "Trot Through trauma," stress and anxiety.  Making her "The Perfect Storm".

Born and raised in Queens, NY, I am the mother of two adult sons and grandmother to my wonderful granddaughter, Harmony. I am also wife to Comedian “Tiny”, Atl’s hottest comedian for 3 consecutive years. I have triumphed through many obstacles which became the inspiration for “On the Thick Side”, to motivate and empower others that struggle with the obstacles of living life in their plus size body. I have finally learned to embrace my thick thighs, stretch marks and most of all, my inner beauty. As a Big Beautiful Woman, I love to see other women that look like me express their body image in a positive manner. In November 2017, I was a panelist for the documentary “In the Thick” by Hank Byrd and I was a speaker for a virtual summit “It Almost Broke Me”. My speech My Darkest Days, is about how I suffered from and was delivered from depression. A few of my upcoming projects include my book Sexual Appetite- Love of a BBW to be released in mid-summer, and an anthology to inspire and uplift other plus size men and women. Talking Thick with Chrissy is a group and blog which I created to help others like me navigate through the ups and downs of life as a plus sized person.

Join my group Talking Thick with Chrissy.
