I am a perpetual Life-Long Student, committed to the pursuit of knowledge and self-improvement. Having triumphed over cancer, I navigate life's intricacies with resilience. My passions extend to various domains, from being a steadfast Cannabis Supporter to serving as a Celiac Ambassador and Celiac Meal Coach. I hold certifications in Life Coaching, Access Bars, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, and Logotherapy, demonstrating my commitment to empowering individuals.

The About Me Page Awkwardness; If there's one thing I find challenging in the world of online presence, it's talking about myself. So, let's start with my story – how I transformed from a healer needing healing into a Lifestyle Coach & Consultant. Along this path, I've learned and experienced enough to help you understand me and where I stand today.

My career initially led me through Customer Retention, Business Management, and Business Reformation. This path exposed me to the often hidden struggles that many face silently. My transition into leadership brought encounters that shaped me and revealed a side of humanity we often overlook. A side that silently suffers and keeps pushing forward, needing an ear, a heart, and a hug on the path to healing. This is why I'm dedicated to helping others manage their lives, steering them toward the illuminated path their soul seeks.

These lessons impacted me emotionally. I awakened to abusive behaviors from friends, co-workers, family, bosses, and even within myself. The world was different from what I had known, and my ignorance unknowingly took a toll on my health. Perhaps you feel it too – the fatigue, the drain, the numbness – subtle indicators from your mind and body that something isn't right. Intuitively, I knew it wasn't just cancer; it was my food, my surroundings, and the unhealed wounds from my past.

Months passed with feelings of fatigue and breathlessness. I realized I needed help. My research suggested low iron levels, leading me to a plant-based Iron Liquid and a focus on sun exposure and cardio. It helped briefly, but I knew it wasn't enough. One morning, the urgency of seeking help hit me – I felt that if I didn't act, I might not survive the day. In and out of consciousness, I managed to call for help. Miraculously, my call reached my son's father, who happened to step out of a reception-free zone at that very moment. A string of divine interventions guided us.

That July morning, I was diagnosed with APL Leukemia, a battle that spanned over 45 days with a dozen doctors, family, and friends by my side. A doctor's words ignited my journey – he showed me how the mind and environment shape our health. This revelation kindled a flame within, reigniting my "Quarks," setting me on a path of change for the better. Cancer and fear reconnected me to my purpose. Major life events often lead to action, and I began adopting a lifestyle I had known for years but neglected. Change required my willpower, my drive, and my decision to put my well-being first.

Learning about myself, understanding my spirit, my body, and when I felt my best became my focus. A change in career allowed me to delve into nutrition and body wellness. My MMA gym experience introduced me to the power of human connection, teaching me that it's okay to be human. My work with MMA fighters reinforced that change is possible, and support exists. I've walked the path of surviving Cancer, overcoming Childhood Trauma, Religious and Social Ritual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Medical and Social Neglect, and more. Grateful for every moment, I'm here, and I'm alive.

This journey, filled with highs and lows, has driven me to help others pursue their goals, dreams, and best lives. My experiences laid the foundation for supporting individuals through their struggles, making them feel heard and understood. After attending classes from esteemed universities like Yale, Duke, Drake, Harvard, and Boston University, I've honed expertise in coaching those with disabilities, brain injuries, and conditions like Anxiety, PTSD, CPTSD, Stress, and Depression.


With over 20 years of experience and training as a Certified Professional and Personal Coach, I specialize in helping individuals confront life's challenges and imbalances. Through techniques like Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Astral Regression Therapy, Color
