My journey on this earth, like everyone, has had it’s ups and downs. I have been wild and free as I traveled the world as an international flight attendant. I have lived through super lows of chronic pain. I have loved and been loved. I have been heart broken and broken hearts. I have lost myself completely in my relationships and returned to myself again and again. I have lived in many different places. I have made amazing friendships. I have been reckless with money. I have kicked off my shoes and danced my ass off. I have struggled with self-acceptance. I have spent much of my time trying to “fix” myself before I could really start living. I have at times put my life on hold and let fear run the show. I have always been a seeker, an adventurer, and a true gemini with my head in the clouds: part headbanger/part grandma, part social butterfly/part homebody! I have been super grateful for all my experiences, yet at times I’ve felt a deep sense that something was missing and I was meant for something bigger.
When I look back at my life thus far, I do know one thing is true. That every road I’ve chosen had to do with finding freedom in some way. I was always moving towards better health, towards personal growth and introspection, and towards JOY even when the choices at the time seemed to be the most difficult. Through my own experiences, I have learned so much. I believe that what we eat, how we live, what we think and feel all contribute to our overall health and wellness. Everything is connected: we are physical, mental, emotional and spiritual beings.
I am so grateful to be here as your guide towards WHOLE body wellness: body, mind and spirit. I am honored to help you on this journey. Namaste!
