Name of Your Business
How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
My work came to me after my life fell apart and I didn’t know how to turn it around. I knew something needed to change in the way I did things, so I started to study, research, learn and work on myself. Once I began to rise out of my darkness, I began to feel a strong inner pull towards sharing this knowledge with others. Not only did I feel the pull to work with people in this way, I was also called and “heard” messages that I was meant to do this work. I listened and ever since have been listening to the inner guidance I continually receive relating to my path. My work is so closely related to my life that I see this purpose as part of who I am and not a separate job.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is someone who is ready for a change because I can only work with individuals that have a strong desire for something different. I live by the words, when the student is ready the teacher will come.
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
I work with individuals, so they can overcome their personal obstacles. We get to the root cause of their programming through various modalities like energy work, hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?
As a younger person I didn’t have any role models, I was very lost, however as I began to connect with the person I had aspired to be I realized I admired certain individuals that possessed the type of person I wanted to be. These people are: The Dalai Lama for his playfulness, love for humanity and deep wisdom, Deepak Chopra for his knowledge of holistic wellness and for being a well-respected thought leader, Oprah Winfrey for her keen business skills, determination and influence and finally Richard Branson for his unique entrepreneurial skills and ability to enjoy life in a fun and creative way while being successful.
Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?
The woods are my place to ground and connect with the answers that are usually hidden within and difficult to access when life gets busy.
Top 3 Ways to Treat Yourself to Self-Care?
I have a daily morning ritual that was integral in turning my life around. I begin each day with gratitude for the gifts I’ve been given, I use my daily yoga and dance practice to help me get in touch with my body and I sit in a mindfulness/ meditation practice to be with myself through life’s journey. These 3 practices are woven into my daily regimen, this self-care routine is extremely important for my well being. I wouldn’t have been capable to change things for myself if this weren’t a part of my life.
How Do You Express Yourself Creatively?
Movement is key for me, I will draw with my entire body (totally funny to witness yet absolutely freeing to do), dance and pull formulas and ideas that I’ve read/ learned and weave them together into a rich tapestry to share with others.
Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?
The Book of Secret Wisdom The Prophetic Record of Human Destiny and Evolution, by Zinovia Dushkova. This book was inspiring because I believe that we are on an evolutionary path and all the changes occurring are intended for a bigger reason. I realize that it is difficult to prove this theory and yet I find that living my life this way has exponentially improved the quality of my life and so this belief system has made my life a much happier one.
Favorite Movie and Why?
Indiana Jones. All of them. My FAVORITE part of my work is to learn and understand how we work as humans, not only in our small day to day world but in all of the world. I LOVE traveling and immersing myself in different cultures and societies so that I can absorb and learn their wisdom. Indiana Jones was the epitome of saving people, exploring faraway lands and surviving through situations that most people wouldn’t think one could survive from. He was the nerdy superhero type that I have always been drawn to and want to be.
“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?
These words remind me that by loving myself and believing that I am good enough, aids in my well being but it is also something that, by treating myself with reverence, gives others permission to do the same.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”― Marianne Williamson

Advice to Younger Self?
It is okay to show people who you really are. Once you do, the people that accept and love you as you, will show up and hang around.
What Do You Love Best About Yourself (physical trait or personality characteristic) and Why?
I forget pain which allows me to open my heart and love unconditionally (and learn valuable lessons). I also act in spite of fear which has helped me live my dreams. I have gotten comfortable enough with fear that I know that even if I’m feeling scared about something relating to my career or personal growth, it doesn’t mean that I’m not supposed to do it.
