What do I do best?
I only like to compare myself to myself, so with that I would say right now I’m the best I’ve ever been at trusting my intuition and believing in my visions.
What makes me the best version of myself?
Letting contribution, love and connection guide my actions rather than the need to be or feel significant.
What are my aspirations?
When I leave this earth I hope to look back and say that with my whole heart I made everyone I came in contact with feel important. Business wise, I want to continue growing my diabetic health coaching business beyond me. I want to build a community with health resources for people with diabetes that go beyond standard medical care
My Biggest Success?
My biggest successes have always come right after my greatest challenges. The one that is most significant is deciding last minute not to go to law school and following my passion for health which had lead to have my own health coaching business, become a Nike ambassador, and get to travel all over the world to speak on the role of wellness and mindfulness in our lives.
My Most Challenging Moment?
My most challenging moment was going from hiding my diabetes from the world for 17 years to outwardly calling myself a Diabetic Health Coach. I used to think it was my greatest weakness but now I understand it is actually my greatest strength.
Through challenge we find our strength.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
My parent’s, my best friends who all add different value to my life, + Tony Robins.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
Sedona, Arizona or anywhere where in the mountains!
My Favorite Products/Objects?
Right now I’m loving Four Sigmatic mushroom teas.
My Current Passions?
Digging deeper into my spirituality. The more I trust, visualize and manifest, the more the universe keeps guiding me and giving me the most beautiful opportunities.
