What is your role?
My role is to inspire and help cultivate conscious connection between all beings. Through a multitude of modalities, I believe we can all rediscover out divine unity and eradicate loneliness.
How do you remain grounded to your work?
Taking time for intentional solitude and reflection. Always committing to my personal growth and learning through listening.
What are your top 3 self-care practices?
Dancing/Listening to my favourite music, LOTS of sleep, and hot/cold therapy.
How did you find yourself on this path?
I travelled a long way to find where i wanted to land in this world. I went through many jobs, friendships, and opportunities where I felt out of place. I was a kid that was heavily bullied growing up and always dreamed one day of being the cool kid. As I got older, I realized it was less about being “cool” and more about learning how to be a beacon of light for those struggling. I vowed to make sure I could find a life path that helped others escape loneliness and feel a deeper sense of self love.
What is your favourite meal?
A colourful and bright Greek salad and chicken cutlets! I love fresh foods and lots of texture!
If you could put any message on a billboard, what would it say?
TELL YOU FRIENDS AND FAMILY YOU LOVE THEM.
What are 4 books that have had a lasting impact on you?
Relax More, Try Less, The 4 Agreements, King, Warrior, Magician, Lover
How do you shift your mood if you're feeling self-deprecating?
This is a huge question!! I firstly think it’s important to know everyone feels this. I used to always think this was such an individual experience but we all carry self doubt with us no matter how “successful” we are. I tend to always start with a walk or step outside and getting some fresh air. Getting out of the house is such a small and powerful hack! I always remind myself that I am trying my best and that my value is not tied to my accomplishments. I will typically do a meditation and/or do some dancing to shake up any stagnant energy and not take myself too seriously.
If you could have lunch with anyone in the world (living or dead) who would it be?
Don Miguel Ruiz or my late grandmother, who was my best friend :)
What impact or shift do you hope to create in the world?
I hope to create a world that feels energized with love and compassion. A world that is kind. Where people feel like they are more than what they do, where they feel a sense of freedom from autonomy to be their most authentic self. I hope to infuse the world with more love.
