Nice to meet you!

I'm Rebekah!

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 MarkahVida to share you with you science backed tools that will help you to realign with your authentic self, 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 be 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 Science & Math. When we combine the two, it makes explaining the magic of our minds so easy! I also love technology, which is no surprise why I LOVE the work I do. 

I believe it is the unique combination of having gone through my own mid-life awakening, knowing the pain and challenges of struggle, and overcoming it, along with my love of science & math that shows up in my approach to everything from my coaching style to cooking, to learning new 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 how we achieve amazing and rapid results.
