I believe that we are all more productive in fulfilling our life’s work when our health is available at a moment’s notice. We all have big plans, children to raise and a mark to leave on the world. In my experience I have seen that one’s approach to health and their respect for wellbeing is a manifestation of their true self and sense of worth.
I am interested in asking the questions and challenging the beliefs that hold people back from achieving their highest potential. I will attest to the wisdom of Bruce Lipton in his observation that our biography dictates our biology. I am convinced that you can be well even when you are sick and I affirm that good health flows from a platform rich in nutrients, grounded in emotional security and abundant in the potential for physical movement.
I believe in creating a safe place from which we can explore tough questions. I believe that good food is both difficult to come by and imperative to fueling our vitality. I have no doubt that respect for our planet and the organisms we share it with is an imperative to the abolishment of cancer and the cultivation of sustainable societies. These feelings, beliefs and absolutes inform my approach, life philosophy and passion for working with people through their healing and self-actualizing journey.
Creative Social Changer
I am deeply committed to social justice and believe that an empowered cultivation of self-worth and self-care can drive a legendary and substantive change on our planet.
Things I love
My cherished family, my amazing friends, my daughter’s smile, blue cheese & balsamic vinegar (together in the same meal), innovators, entrepreneurs, Africa (you must visit), kale (chips, steamed, raw or as décor), sailing and the complex, yet simple smell of a healthy forest.
