About Me


I first discovered meditation in 2009, and Ayurvedic lifestyle a year later. It was a time in my life wrought with changes and challenges. I had gone from being a stay-at-home wife and mother of three, to being a divorced empty-nester in the blink of an eye. My self-confidence and purpose in life were gone. Not only was I at a crossroad, but I couldn’t even identify what that crossroad was. I was lost and I was stuck.

The benefits I received from my meditation practice were amazing and practically immediate. My feelings of self-doubt, anger, fear, sadness began to fade. The fog was lifted. My sense of wholeness, compassion, and forgiveness increased. My migraines vanished and I was sleeping better. I found a part of myself that had been dormant for decades. The sun began to shine again. I had begun a process of metamorphosis, of personal and spiritual growth, and emotional healing that would continue for ten years. 

Now I have over 1,000 hours of Meditation Teacher Training and four Certifications from three different traditions: Primordial Sound Meditation from Deepak Chopra, Mindfulness from the Meditation Learning Center based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn, and a variety of practical, real world tools and techniques to reduce stress and increase performance from world renowned meditation teacher and best selling author Davidji and, in 2018, I received an Advanced Master of Wisdom and Meditation Teacher Certification from the Davidji Meditation Academy. 

I can help you find the style of meditation that is best suited to your life and help you develop a consistent practice that will allow you to navigate all of the challenges, stumbling blocks, and crossroads that inevitably arise in your life.

My love of learning and fascination for ancient wisdom led me to also discover Warrior-Goddess Training created by HeatherAsh Amara and based on the Toltec teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz. I became a Level 1 Facilitator so that I could help you clear away old agreements that no longer serve you so that you can live a truly authentic life filled with self confidence and self compassion. 

In order to unify or synthesize all of these tools and techniques, I completed the Wholebeing Institute’s Certified Positive Psychology Coach training program, based on the work of WBI’s co-founder and Harvard lecturer, Tal Ben-Shahar, and the relatively young field of Positive Psychology developed and founded  by Martin Seligman (UPenn).

Together, you and I can utilize my vast professional training. We can develop a path that allows you to navigate through life’s challenges; to identify and achieve goals that allow you to flourish,  and lead a truly fulfilling, authentic  & happy life.

Afterall, life is too short to be anything but happy
