How did you get to be where you are today? Effort and persistence. I’ve learned to never give up and that has really helped me. Sometimes, I feel discouraged, as we all do, and something in me kicks in and won’t be defeated. I feel guided and very blessed and spirit directed which is a guiding source for me. When I seek answers, I am given them.
Have you ever been fired? Never
What are your real passions? Dancing, healing and energy work, writing, helping and inspiring others, creating a better world. I adore my cat and have a real affinity in my heart for all animals!
If you won the lotto what would you do? I’d travel more and have more foundations that help others especially women and children and animals. I’m not sure I’d stop doing what I‘m doing because it’s what I love to do. Maybe I’d do some of from more exotic places.
What do you hope to accomplish in the future? I believe I have a strong message (I’m not alone in this) and want to reach a broader audience with that message. International seminars and travel. I’ll always be writing. I came into this lifetime with a pen in my hand () and writing is more than a hobby or calling. It’s encoded in my DNA. More Healing work being a bridge and I’ll always be teaching and coaching. I’d like to move more into films and script writing. I believe we’re here to love, learn and grow as much as possible in many ways certainly in terms of our soul and spirit and into our more loving nature and in the ways we can extend that love and knowledge and help to others
What do you like to do in your personal life? Being in nature, films, read, laugh, spend intimate time with friends, working out, traveling, hiking, walking, adventure, meditate, play, and strolling along a beach and in the mountains. I believe in lifelong learning and I continue to find much that fascinates me to learn and study.
Please give us one plug for someone else or your favorite cause or charity. Autism Speaks is a charity that I’ve did a fundraising event for last year. They help children and adults and their families with education, support, advocacy and tools. Autism seems to be increasing at an alarming rate and organizations like this help to find treatment and fund research endeavors.
What do you do to help stay your best ever? Exercise, meditate celebrate and think positively. Also, Alexander Technique (I’m a certified teacher in this as well), energy work (I’m a Reiki Master Teacher also and have studied Alternative therapy modalities in addition to my coaching, hypnosis and counseling training). Also, doing some kind gesture daily that helps another person. Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude and learning!
How do you help other people be their best? I have a psychic/intuitive gift that helps me tune into other people and know what they need and what their true purpose and direction are. My role is a mentor, coach, cheerleader and taskmaster and I offer people practical and spiritual solutions and strategies they can use to release their blockages and create more success, wellness and freedom in their lives and in their careers and business. Energy Medicine is so extensive to our lives and I’ve studied various energy and healing modalities including Reiki Master, Shamanism, Sound and Vibrational Healing, and more.
What is your favorite book to recommend to someone else to read? The Little Prince by Saint-Exupéry. We read it in French in my class in middle school ions ago and it moved me immensely. It’s about creativity and thinking outside the box, connective relationships and love and intimacy. Although it may be considered a children’s book, it’s simple yet profound message is apropos to everyone
Tell us a secret ;) I was shy as a child and my teachers told my mother I’d be a late bloomer. I’m still blooming!
