I Believe that you didn't come here to settle nor did you come here to be a slave to anyone or anything other than your own passion.
You came here to do, experience and be a part of incredible things. You came here to make a difference, to help, to create, to have fun, to be fulfilled and to feel good. So stop believing that in order to live an incredible, impactful life to do it all & have it all, That you also have to experience high stress, exhaustion and deprivation. Depletion is not the second-hand effect of a job well done. Satisfaction is.
I am an ambitious adventurer, happy homemaker and general lover of the little things. From a very early age, I have worked to find a balance between my high expectation for achievement (and the stress that comes from it) and my need to feel at ease and in joy with everything and everyone around me. As my commitments and ambitions have grown, my passions for cooking, gardening, travel, exercise and being present for the ones that I love (two and four legged alike) have remained steadfast. I believe not only that you can have it all, but that you need to have it all in order to show up every day, at full capacity, ready to take on the world.
Since a very young age my life has been my own personal experiment to figure out how to create the conditions to be successful and thrive. What has been proven time and again is that the more I pay attention to and honor my own self the more I know who this Self is, what she needs and how she shows up best. This authenticity and awareness has translated to happiness, health and the inner compass needed to stay on track (my track, that is). It is this track which enables me to show up fully and give myself fully to all that I commit to doing.
Whether you are 5 or 55, the quality of your life and the work that you do is going to be a direct reflection of the quality of life that you live. The more self aware you are and willing to honor your needs and desires, the more fully and authentically you show up for what you do and whom you do it with. The answer to having it all starts with knowing yourself and being brave enough to build a life that authentically reflects it, balancing your successes across all areas and managing stress level with daily practices.
I work with educators who live life passionately and purposefully, but sometimes, like I do, get worn down by the stress of life, forgetting the truth of who they are and what their mission is. It's about turning that light back on, every single day, by tuning in to the light within and building daily practices that support this light in shining. I am your greatest champion and loudest cheerleader to do you, love you and live for you because the world doesn't need more ‘perfect people’, the world needs more people who are living profoundly and serving purposefully.
