Raised with an appreciation of family,friends,writing, music, and cheese, Caprise has embraced her Wisconsin upbringing-sadly enduring her lactose intolerance. Her love of writing however, has never been curbed. Starting in the second grade when she wrote a poem for her teacher’s new baby. 38 years later, Caprise is still at it. Following college, her professional career in Human Resources was switched to education after deciding she was over adults. With time spent on her observations on life and her free spirited daughter known as G, Caprise hosts a weekly radio show. Shoes, makeup, music, pastries, tattoos and a slight obsession with Henry Rollins have replaced the loss of cheese and ice cream in her life; all the while restrained with whip cream and a cherry on top of this thing she calls life.
From the streets of Massachusetts to the valleys of Idaho, this single mother has sacrificed a lot to provide an amazing life for her son who is now a senior in college soon to live his life. She has a FT job, a PT job & two side hustles. She has overcome a lot and is reminded by her latest tattoo, (NOTW) that she is ‘Not of This World’ …only IN it. Every day she focuses on finding the joy in the sadness, the turmoil, the chaos that is in her heart or in the world. If she could write a biography, you would ask “how is she alive today after all that she’s been through? why is she so positive? and where does she get her tenacity?” Trial after trial; divorce, homelessness, suffering, loneliness, deaths, heartache, tragedy, misfortune……She has overcome! How?….BUT GOD. That’s it! Right there in a nutshell. BUT GOD. After every upset there has been triumph & blessing & miracle & victory… After everystorm there has been a rainbow. Over & over & over again. She knows like she knows, she is here to love others and to be a beacon of light in the darkness. She is a GodGirl.
