Since graduating from UNH with a business degree, I turned my sights to some of my passions including sustainability, wellness, yoga, travel, and cooking in the pursuit of a healthier, happier life. This path has lead me around the world, working in different fields with different people. I was given opportunities to witness first hand how various cultures live and thrive, and in doing so have integrated many teachings into my own life with the intention of sharing this wisdom with others.
The place that had the most profound impact on my life is Costa Rica. I spent over five months living and working at a sustainable living centre on the Caribbean coast. Living in such a simple manner, with a wide array of like-minded people rocked me into a new perspective. I was able to witness first hand how a pure, straight-from-the-earth lifestyle feels. Combining a fresh tropical diet with meaningful relationships, hard work, minimal luxuries and nature on over-drive created a clear mind and an open heart. Though sometimes the intensity was overwelming, my life - though lacking most modern essentials - was rich. It was after returning from Costa Rica that I understood I could not return to my previous life, some things had to change. This mentality is what brought me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, as I was looking for a way to pair the skills I acquired with higher education to build a life doing what I am most passionate about.
It was at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I received my training in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Although I do not connect strongly with the title "health coach," IIN's program had an incredibly positive effect on me and was the foundation from which I have since built my career. IIN raised my awareness of wellness in its many forms and gave me very grounded and practical ways to apply some non-traditional ideals. This work has served as the template for my Empowered Life Coaching Program, as well as many other programs that I offer.
After practicing yoga for over 5 years I (finally) traveled to India to get to the root of this magnificent spiritual institution. It was at SivaSoorya Divine School of Yoga that I studied intensively for 4 weeks not only the many postures of yoga, but more so the entire map of the yogic lifestyle. My 200 hour training covers physical, spiritual, nutritional, mental aspects of what it means to truly live a yogic life, being both strong and compassionate. Yoga is a powerful tool that can give rise to any number of personal transformations. The ability to master the breath provokes a presence that empowers the individual to have control over all physical, mental and emotional sensations experienced. It was this training and experience that shifted my perspective of personal power.
As I grew and evolved with my practices I continued to learn new things, meet new people, and discover new opportunities. My newest adventure took me down a much deeper, more spiritual pathway to penetrate the the root of each individual and their purpose and light on this earth. Soul Realignment breaks down the blocks in your life and discusses your soul purpose in this lifetime and how to live in complete alignment with it. This alignment will ensure the highest of positive living, full of energy, vibrancy, and love. Connecting with individuals via the Akashic records has taught my so much about humanity, raising my compassion and awareness of how incredibly powerful and overwhelming positive people truly are.
In the summer of 2015 I had the incredible opportunity to attend the Breakthrough to Success program hosted by Jack Canfield. In many ways this training felt like a very critical puzzle piece to pull all of my work together. Although the intention was to benefit personally (which I did), the majority of the experience served to connect me with individuals who were living their power and doing incredible things. BTS inspired me, but more importantly it gave me really wonderful, practical tools to use that bridged the gap between the spiritual world and the physical one. I am a spiritual being, but more importantly I am a human being and I believe that spirituality is a concept that should be applied to every inch of your life. If spirituality is connecting to oneself via the world in which we live then it is a highly practical matter, connecting all regardless of language or belief. The source of an individual's power lays within the individual, this connection can only be made through spirituality, regardless of whether or not you use this term.
So here I stand, continuously exploring, experiencing, evolving in an effort to be of greater service to the beautiful world that I live in. Combining my travels, education and experiences I am able to provide clients with holistic alternatives to heal and grow strong. My intention is to empower individuals to live an authentic and engaging life. The quality of life around you- your physical and mental health, level of success and interactions with others- is a direct result of the quality of life within you. I supports clients with life-long tools to reduce limiting factors like stress and fear, promote wellbeing and build positive relationships in pursuit of a vibrant, successful life. Each individual has a unique blueprint of skills and gifts, and it is my mission to support each client’s pursuit of living aligned to this blueprint, understanding that in doing so life becomes not only more fulfilling, but positively impactful to the world we live in as well.
