The long version:
My Journey into being me, it's an odd story, with no linear paths to get there. Lots of winding roads and paths I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams. I grew up an only child from a small town in Massachusetts, born to teenage parents that never married. My life began unconventional, so it's not surprising I've remained pretty unconventional during my time here on Earth.
After graduating from college, I moved to New York City, with no job, very little money, a trunk full of my necessities, and enough hope, dreams, and faith that could shoot me to the moon. I hustled and landed a fantastic career in Investor Relations, think shark tank, I raised capital for businesses and pitched corporate narratives and stories to investors. I even managed to squeeze in an MBA and a graduate study abroad in France during that 13 year NYC stint.
During a pivotal moment, aka the infamous crossroads we all have in life, I decided to go out on a whim and take a leap of faith. I decided to take a sabbatical and head to India, and I would keep exploring and traveling the world, 3 continents, and a whole lot of countries solo. Mid-life crisis, maybe? Once-in-a-lifetime experience, most definitely!
In India, I lived at Ashrams and Yoga Centers, obtaining certifications in Yoga, Meditation, and Sound Therapy. I trained under the teachings of Thích Nhất Hạnh while living at his Buddhist Monastery, Plum Village, in France, and the teachings of S. N. Goenka at a Vipassana Meditation Center in Italy.
I also made space for my entrepreneur and innovative interests, which meant volunteering at local non-profits around the world that focused on economic development and mobility through entrepreneurship.
My journey brought me back to the good ole' US of A where I have brought meditation and sound bath classes to communities around the country; virtually and in-person. I have seen, felt, and heard of the profound impact these classes that I've taught have had on people. I will forever, as long as you'll have me, bring the power of the pause to people and spaces. We all deserve to take moments in our day to go within.
In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering, writing, reading, traveling, sailing, yoga, meditation, biking, skiing, kayaking, hiking, and scuba diving... I pretty much love all things, except skydiving.
Love + Light,
