What do I do best?
I am naturally good at seeing the power of any person and mirroring that to them. I empower therefore I am. I see unique greatness in every single person.
What makes me the best version of myself?
Getting out of my head and getting into action.
Being around people who are playing a big game in their lives.
Move quickly. And rest often.
What are my aspirations?
Personal - being a mother and wife, and seeing every bit of this beautiful planet, perform music, learn an instrument, learn various forms of dance, fully heal my spine/body - made SO MUCH progress so far ;)
Business - professional speaker, write a book (or more!), creating a self-sustaining business in person and online, create a mastermind group, host an online TV show
My Biggest Success?
My biggest successes:
Working through my stage fright. I used to almost faint!
Becoming a naturopathic doctor
Created and have sustained Dr. Lo Radio for 6+ years, and recorded 214 episodes, over 2 million downloads
Created Shine Natural Medicine and hit nearly 1 million in revenue in our 3rd year of business, with little to no business experience.
My Most Challenging Moment?
Recently firing an employee who our team loved. She was like family, but we needed to make a difficult decision to give our patients the very best possible care. It was such a tough decision, but we felt confident it was the best decision.
Ready, FIRE, aim.

My Current Passions?
I'm SO excited about revamping Shine Natural Medicine and potentially moving into a new and larger clinic space. I'm embarking on a physical/spiritual/emotional healing journey - using naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, pilates (new OBSESSION), and emotional work of Byron Katie. I'm working on my own fertility so I can make the dream of becoming a mother one day come true.
