Who I am and my beliefs
I believe life is made up of how it feels to be you. That every moment is an opportunity for a depth of experience that is meaningful, purposeful, and deeply rewarding. Alignment is my highest value – what is right for me, is right for the world – and what is right for you, is right for the world. My second highest value is actualizing dreams. I’m a community builder, teacher, coach, burner, and fiercely committed to the liberation of the human spirit.
Education & training
In 2014, I established a corporate wellness consultancy, which marked the beginning of my profound journey into the study of well-being. Over the following seven years, I led the organization's initiatives in companies across the country while immersing myself in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Landmark education, and literature from influential authors like Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Dr. David Hawkins, Michael Singer, and others. I engaged in transformative experiences with the founders at the Apeiron Center for Human Potential and attended workshops with happiness researchers, relationship therapists, nutritionists, and social justice activists.
I received extensive mentorship from Mindlight co-founder Lillian Moore for more than five years, and I hold a certification in Mental Health First Aid and a bachelor's Degree in International Business and Marketing from Binghamton University.
