My father’s near fatal heart attack when I was 6 and ultimate death when I was 16 taught me about the impermanence of life. I felt unsafe and afraid. At 6, I developed unhealthy addictive eating patterns to numb myself so I wouldn’t have to feel what I wasn’t able to express. Yo-yo dieting, overweight, and poor self-esteem led to continued weight gain. At 20, this led to an emotional breakdown when I experienced what I thought were symptoms of a chronic illness. After watching my 36 year old father suffer 9 years, I was afraid I was spiraling down to a life of sickness and early death. In a Divine moment, an inner voice cried to be whole, well and happy. I knew I must make radical changes if wanted to avoid dying young like my dad.
That deep desire and intention not to suffer any longer set me on a body, mind and spirit healing path that attracted teachers, mentors and healers that helped me reverse my journey to sickness. I studied how to live a healthy lifestyle, fulfill my soul’s purpose, nourish my body consciously with healing and protective whole foods, connect to something greater than myself, live a life of gratitude and enjoy a healthier, fulfilling, more vibrant life — more than I could ever have imagined for the past 50 years.
My passion is helping others to live a better life.
