To discuss what you might want to work on with me, let’s get in touch.

Life Experience & Professional Background

I’ve traveled and lived abroad in 24 countries, and learned 4 foreign languages as an adult.

I have explored a lot of careers. I’ve practiced and performed with a plethora world music and jazz ensembles, choirs, and dance groups, pushing myself to be great, continue learning, and engage in my creativity. 

I’ve learned that I am extremely empathic & in tune with subtle energies. I had to learn how to thrive in a more honest way.

I have found many supportive practices & hobbies to support myself in living fully, simply, and peacefully. I have suffered a lot of health problems & low immunity, rooted in a severe fragrance sensitivity (MCS). This has given way to a return to natural living, and a more balanced life. 

I’ve done training and certification in mindfulness, meditation, and healing. I’ve studied under some talented mentors, coaches & authors. They encouraged me to move through some deep healing and inspired me to open myself to the true beauty around me.
