Born to American Buddhist parents who embraced all things Eastern, I grew up on a macrobiotic diet (translation: kale was my baby food), and alternative medicine like homeopathy and Chinese herbs, nestled in the mountain town Boulder, Colorado.
I was never interested in becoming a Buddhist. I had my own path to pioneer, but I was unaware of this for many years. A different way of seeing the world, meditation and spiritual books were always available to me, but I wasn’t ready to listen.
Within a couple years of moving to New York City to begin my career in publishing, my happiness + health declined and the first of the pillars of my life began to crumble, beginning with my health. My unsustainable lifestyle was wreaking havoc on my mind + body, which manifested as an onslaught of physical and emotional ailments. At the same time, there was a longing and desire within me to do work that was meaningful. I knew I was meant for something more, but I felt trapped and confused.
A deep knowing and fire within me that was burning to make a large impact on the world, guided me to leave the job and blaze a new trail, pioneering a path I never knew could exist.
I healed my physical ailments through the holistic approach my parents taught me and left behind the career I once coveted, to begin working with clients in my transformational programs. Within two years, the final pillar crumbled, and in a pocket of deep pain during a rockbottom breakup, my spiritual transformation began.
It was in my darkest hour that I became willing to listen. Stepping out of what some would call the Dark Night of the Soul, I began to live and apply the spiritual teachings, transforming my life from the inside out in ways I never thought possible. Miracles began to occur daily.
The baseline of my transformation was that I chose to stop believing in illusions and start putting my faith in reality, which was a radical purification of all my fears and limiting beliefs and a return to the truth of the love within me. Dissolving separation and reconnecting with love was my path to freedom.
ONLY LOVE IS REAL
I cultivated a level of happiness I’d never experienced before and it was amidst the chaos and struggle. When I realized happiness was a choice I could make in any moment—and was not circumstantial—it was the most liberating thing I’d ever experienced. Life never looked the same and it was from this place that a dream started unfolding, bigger than I could have imagined, as I left behind my fear-based reality that had only one antidote: Love.
Through reconnecting with my true self, my mission hatched.
I awakened to my responsibility on the planet. Happiness is our purpose, and this is because our purpose is to serve. As we become happy, we are able to serve on a higher level because it’s a ripple effect of love, positively affecting everyone around us and we awaken to our life’s purpose–our mission.
My mission is to open all willing hearts and minds by sharing the tools and teachings that guided me back to my best self.
I believe we all have a mission that we’re meant to wake up to as we shed the shrouds of doubt and fear—and as we do, our gifts and passions are activated and revealed, waiting for us to share with the world in our own perfectly unique way.
