My service in this life is to offer nourishment through actions that create beauty, instill a sense of calm, and facilitate relaxation.
Over the past 20 years, I have slowly uncovered my true essence and created a peaceful ayurvedic lifestyle through study and practice of yoga, ayurveda and tantra. It wasn't easy. This journey was thoroughly tested and shaped through my personal experiences of childbirth and death, marriage and divorce, grief and depression, anxiety and PTSD, and the upheaval caused by many moves across the U.S.
My true dharma was revealed through the loving guidance of my teacher, Chinnamasta, during a recent two-and-a-half-year ayurvedic lifestyle immersive apprenticeship and five-year ayurvedic mentorship program. Additional studies and certifications include IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist, Dr. Frawley's Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant (ongoing), End-of-Life Doula (ongoing), and Licensed Massage Therapist.
Through a life of careers and passions—as an aviator, FAA mechanic, documentary filmmaker, Alaska wilderness restaurateur, training manager, facilitator, tourism experience designer, church board member, spiritual aspirant, and community volunteer—I've come to a place where my greatest joy and fulfillment comes through service to those who are going through life transitions. I can see how my life's path has led me here, how all of my experiences have enriched my life and prepared me for this purpose.
