Healing myself from chronic illness left me with a powerful story to share with the world.  It also led me to discover who I truly am, what lights me up, and how to be of service to the world in my own unique way.  

I discovered a hidden passion and talent for organizing and leading conscious events, as well as speaking to groups about their untapped potential for healing their bodies, quieting their minds, and living an inspired life with purpose.

What I've accomplished in the past five years, as I shed the label of "accountant" and embraced this new path in my life never fails to astound me.  

If you'd like me to speak at one of your upcoming events, please contact me to chat about working together.  You can download my resume here.
