What do I do best?
Read the energy of people and places through the colors and shapes I see surrounding a person ( the aura)
What makes me the best version of myself?
When I’m abiding in a mind space free of non-duality and judgement, from this place of inner peace I’m able to react to the world and whatever comes my way during a day from a place of accountability, responsibility, compassion and perseverance.
What are my aspirations?
In business I would like to see Medicine Readings become more and more accessible to larger quantities of people. One way I’m currently working on this is through Month of Medicine an audio Medicine Reading experience where subscribers can tune in once a week and each month we focus on a different theme.
Personally I’d like to spend more time traveling this beautiful earth with my beautiful family learning about the world and it’s people through getting out of our comfort zone.
My Biggest Success?
My Most Challenging Moment?
In 2012 I had to close my business, a yoga studio and healing center in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The problem was that at that I point in my life I focused on building everyone else up and not myself, I was too afraid to shine my light. That resulted in me burning myself out, it took a couple years to recover but I’m grateful for all the lessons I learned and obstacles I overcame. I view that time as a key piece in where I am know. Sometimes the best lessons are the hardest.
