What is your wellness philosophy?

Wellness is an evolution meaning we are always opening to deeper levels of wellness based on where we are in our lives. Wellness includes a multitude of layers of consciousness mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, energetic wellness. Wellness is also multidimensional because as a human race we are awakening to new paradigms of healing and well being.

What brought you into wellness?

I was a seeker and had psychic gifts as a child and struggled with an undiagnosable disease and near death experience as a teenager. I felt so alone because none of my friends, classmates, teammates understood what it felt like to be sick and to have a near death. I made a determination at that time in my life to be healthy again so I could support others who were struggling with disease and health. I knew that I would only be able to serve others as far as I'd been willing to go. Every choice through life since then, from what I studied in college, to the line of work that I entered after college, moving through alcoholism to sobriety, healing that disease from childhood, becoming pregnant when I was told I wouldn't be able to, has been driven by the mission to use everything in my life to heal and help others.

What does You. We. All. mean to you?

You to me means that we first must heal ourselves before we can heal others. We is the greater purpose behind that whatever we experience and heal, which is that our experience can help at least one other person. All to me means the greater purpose as to why we are on this earth together. We all come here to earth to help each other heal, in multidimensional ways, from the people that trigger or hurt us, to the people that inspire and love us.

What gets you up in the morning?

I feel so grateful to be alive and to be given another opportunity to allow my human vessel and life to serve others, and to let my human life be a place where I get to learn and love fully.
