Venturing within and Exploring with Pizzazz!

About Me

With former experience in the fields of social work and education, coupled with a passion for global activism and community service, I believe that much lasting change in our world begins from the inside out.

For years, and often as part of a network of therapists, life coaches, and healers, I have been using my skills in body/movement awareness and my experience as a yoga instructor to guide inner growth for outer action.

I combine my compassionate sensitivity, insatiable curiosity, and love of deep personal transformation in my writings, and in my life.

My goal and ultimate purpose is to facilitate, for myself and others, a process of deep self-awareness and development as we each navigate the sometimes tricky sometimes delightful terrain of our human experience. 

I vow to use my joy, my power, and my voice to inspire and unite others in freely expressing themselves while living honest, raw, and compassionate lives.


What brought me to this page today, to the understanding I have of myself in this moment, and to you?

With a sensitive soul, a compassionate heart, and a curious and questioning mind, I am continually on the path of following my bliss, becoming my truest self, and living in alignment with my passion in order to make the best and brightest contribution I can make in this world.

My journey towards feeling, giving, receiving, and being in “love” and of “service” has led me from leading spiritual retreats, to chanting mantras in a packed temple; from working with the homeless and with challenged youth, to building pathways in the Costa Rican jungle; from filming cross-cultural workshops in France to teaching yoga and creative movement; and from an empty heart full of longing, to one full of hope and belief.

In all my various work and experiences, which have included waitressing and many administrative roles as well as those people-oriented jobs which I found more creatively fulfilling, the common thread has been to connect with others on their journeys despite our differences, and in fact, forging strong bonds because of our differences.

I have poured my heart, my time, my energy into each endeavor, growing from each one, and taking lessons with me from my work, and more importantly, from the relationships formed in the process.

In some ways, my journey has always been what I sought, in others, it’s a journey which ever continues to unfold as we recognize ourselves as constant works-in-progress.

I am on a mission to nurture a world in which we are each more self-affirming through an abundance of self-love, more confident in the power of our dreams, more fulfilled in the process of reaching them, and more delighted in the dance of an unshaped destiny.

I invite you to come along for the ride, to explore your own journey, and to embark together into the unknown to search for a truth which can not be discovered, but only, created.
