Thanks for visiting. Let's get to know each other!
I'M A COACH, TEACHER, AND MENTOR.
I'm so excited to support you on your journey to higher living. I've been living and practicing spiritual and self-development, yoga, and meditation for over 20 years, and I have empowering tools to help you get out of your way and get to a place where you're excited to wake up every single day - to a beautiful life that YOU created for yourself.
Even before I had my son, my nickname was 'Mama.' I'm genuine, nurturing, down to earth, and a big-time LOVER. Supporting people while they achieve their goals and live their passions has always come naturally to me. I suppose I love it so much because I have gone through significant changes in my life, and when it comes to transformation, I know what is possible, and I know what it takes. I also know it's not easy, and that's why I am passionate about guiding you and empowering you with the tools I have collected over the years. I have experienced firsthand the power of life coaching, yoga, and meditation with my clients, and it has helped me transform my own life. If you're ready to commit to creating a life that you're truly excited about living, then I'm your girl.
AS MOST THINGS, IT BEGINS WITH A STORY
A story of a girl that hit her fair share of challenges and turned her obstacles into strategies. I wasn't going to let the tough times hold me back, so I harnessed the lessons learned to strengthen my connection to my truth on this beautiful path of continuous self-study, deep discovery, dream-chasing, continual growth, self-love & acceptance, and big-time manifestation.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE WORTHY OF HAVING EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE. I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW TO TACKLE YOUR FEARS AND DOUBTS ADN SHIFT YOUR MINDSET.
Growing up, I did not experience happiness at home. I did not have a healthy relationship with my family, I was in foster homes at one point, and eventually, I turned to food, alcohol, and drugs to forget and to fit in. While most kids groaned about going to school on Monday morning, I could not wait. It was a place where I could pretend everything was ok. And that was good enough for me - because I did not know anything else.
I REACHED A BREAKING POINT
Fast forward to my early 20's - I was unhealthy and overweight when I landed my first dream job. My new career was the first time in my life that I felt pride and passion for anything. I was a hairstylist in a top Hair Salon, and I loved what I was doing but hated how I looked and felt. I was overweight, and I could not find clothes to fit me, and this would be the beginning of an almost obsessive and passion-fueled deep dive into everything and anything related to nutrition, health, and self-development - mind, body, spirit, and soul.
Although not being able to fit into large-sized pants at the mall was the thing that inspired all the work I began doing on myself, it also became super clear to me that my mind and spirit needed some love too. So I hit the gym to work on my body and hit the library to work on my mindset. I started with books by authors like Og Mandino and Tony Robbins that rocked my world and changed my life forever, and I never looked back!
While this was all happening, I was developing a love affair with my work. I would drive home every day with the brightest grin on my face (and heart!) and think I had just learned the biggest secret of all time - IT'S POSSIBLE TO LOVE WHAT I DO FOR WORK! I never in my life knew this was a possibility. No one talked about it, and it certainly wasn't anything I experienced in my household growing up. I was seriously hooked, and I wanted to share this little secret with everyone. Little did I know that this small discovery and my recent transformation would be the thing that fueled my life - my purpose.
LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT THIS SMALL DISCOVERY AND MY RECENT TRANSFORMATION WOULD BE THE THING THAT FUELED MY LIFE - MY PURPOSE.
Over the years, I lost over 60 pounds, moved cross country twice, then overseas - living and teaching yoga in Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia with lots of travel in between. Since then, I've stuck to a healthy lifestyle and have been committed to my growth - on all levels. I embraced failure, tapped into my intuition, and believed I could be, do and have anything I wanted.
In addition to teaching yoga and meditation and helping thousands of students all over the world since 2002, I embarked on a new path and became a Transformational Life Coach, a Hypnotherapist, and NLP Practitioner and took my career to a new level. I have also studied Advanced Yoga Psychology and love using all my tools to support women taking the leap into the next chapter of their lives. Now, I live and work in Los Angeles, California. My path brings me to this moment today - where I help people just like you live an empowered life. I teach women how to connect to their inner wisdom, create strategies, and support them while pursuing their dreams. It’s why I love waking up every day!
