Nice to meet you!
When I was a child, my parents told me that I didn't come with an owner's manual, and I believed them. By the time I reached 41 years old, I felt completely disconnected from myself and my desires. I had been living my life for others and giving away my personal power, which made me feel like a victim of my circumstances.
This feeling led to a mid-life awakening, where I discovered the science behind success and happiness.
The great news is that there is a manual available to help you achieve success and happiness in your life.
I am here today to share this with you!
To understand how important this work is to me, let me share a little of my story..
I grew up in a small town in central California where many dreamt of getting out and most never do. I was one of the ones that made it. After more than a decade of living in Beverly Hills, life events forced me to reflect on my professional journey. As a single mom, I took over my family business. For over 20 years, I worked in male-dominated industries, striving to prove myself. I wore my overtime like a badge of honor and I was exhausted.
When my children were deciding on colleges, exploring their future careers, I realized I had neglected my own dreams. I had become a “People Pleaser,” putting the needs and desires of others before my own.
This realization sparked my mid-life awakening, which began as a crisis becoming an opportunity for massive transformation. Using tools that came to me intuitively, I reshaped my mindset and overcame a mountain of limiting beliefs. I lost over 30 pounds, moved past my depression and dependencies, and gave myself permission to live life with purpose and passion. I embraced my uniqueness and failures, which I now refer to as my “learnings,” and most importantly, I learned to love and respect myself, living my Life Brand.
I later learned these methods were foundational elements of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and other science backed methodologies. I didn’t understand why so many of us struggle for meaning and fulfillment, when there is science that explains it, as well as how to change it! You can imagine, this ignited a burning desire in me to share with the world.
One of the best compliments I’ve ever received was when someone told me “Every time I see you, you look happier than the last time.” and I was!!
Today, I am living my soul’s purpose and I am in love with my life. I have created this retreat to share you with you science backed tools that will help you to realign with your purpose, creating a purpose filled and joyful life. I hope that my story gives you hope and that through my learnings I will share with you, you will leave this retreat being able to confidently say yes to what brings enthusiasm and no to what doesn’t align with your conviction.
A Little Bit About Me
Cooking is meditation for me. I don’t follow any single recipe. I normally read multiple recipes, then I choose what I like from each, mix the pieces together and create deliciousness.
I do not take myself too seriously. I love a good laugh.
My favorite adjective is the “F” word, so watch out when I get passionate about something.
I love technology, which is no surprise why I LOVE the work I do. When you think about it, our minds are the best super processor that’s ever existed, literally technology.
I think it is the unique combination of my firsthand experience, having gone through this myself, knowing the pain and challenges of the struggle and overcoming it, my approach to cooking, and my love of figuring out technology; it’s the combination of all of these skillsets, and perhaps also my ability to have fun and laugh at myself, that creates the magic in how I work with people and we achieve amazing and rapid results.
