Pieces of me + offical Bio Below…
As a child I lived in Oregon, California, and Florida. At age 20 I moved to NYC and lived there for almost 12 years. I then lived for 2 years in Nicaragua, 5 years in Santa Cruz, and many months on the open road (solo for a 3 month trip along the Pacific Coast Highway and 6 months around the USA in a 200 sq. foot RV - you can read about that trip and what I learned here). I now reside in Reno, Nevada.
When I was six, I was diagnosed with a neurological brain disorder that caused me to have many little seizures throughout my day. Until this was discovered people thought I was slow (an air-head). I no longer have these seizures; however I feel those years gave me a gift. I saw the world differently and it taught me to be a seeker; to explore relentlessly the world within and beyond. I feel this fragmentation in which I lived in allowed for me to recognize a truth…our minds create many illusions that can leave us feeling confused and broken, and many live in this storyline their whole life - re-living pieces of a puzzle, over and over again, but with a plot twist. The truth, we are eternally free and even in the heartbreaking mess, there is staggering beauty.
I have a long time love affair with martial arts and yoga (modes of self-healing that aim to increase awareness and excellence), writing (a tool of self-expression - beauty sharing that ‘deepen and widen and expand our sense of life - it feeds our soul’), and improv (a place where we can remove our masks and armor, touching the heart of our truth and belonging). I believe these practices develop within us wholehearted courage and are powerful tools to be implemented into leadership and community development.
I have been an international yoga and mindfulness teacher for more than a decade, my experience has spanned from teaching in the NYC juvenile ‘justice’ system to teaching trainings and retreats around the world in places such as Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Thailand, Morocco, Peru, Bali, Canada and all over the USA.
I have coached & taught hundreds of individuals from over 4 continents over the past decade.
I’m a Certified Master Level Transformational Life + Leadership Coach, NLP Practitioner, & the founder of three transformational experiences: The Changemakers Circle, The Changemakers Adventure, and The Changemakers Collective.
I’m the creator of The Fulfillment Formula and the author of The Fulfillment Formula Journal + Companion Planner.
My mission…to leave this world with more people singing this truth in their hearts, “I am larger, better than I thought, I did not know I held so much goodness.” -Walt Whitman
When we start living in alignment with who we really are and want to be in this world, reaching for the life we most want to live - we create a better world.
The Dalai Lama once said, “with realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” My mission is to create a world where ambitious rebels with a cause (or longing for one), are changing the world by re-defining what is possible in their own life.
Bring your full self to the world
Because when you create a life that lights you up, you also illuminate the world
