MY STORY


I was born into a family on the verge of separation. Following my arrival to the planet, my parents immediately began their divorce. Then at 5 and a half months old, I became ill with bacterial spinal meningitis.

Though the doctors warned of learning challenges and loss of hearing, I graduated at the top of my class as a sensitive and thriving young woman. I believe I owe a great portion of this success to the simple Brain Gym tools I used daily.

Beyond my initial arrival to the world, I faced other challenges. Navigating a large combined family, losing a grandparent at age 7 and watching a friend get hit by a car and die at age 9 stand out from the crowd.

Yet thanks to Brain Gym, the Expressive Arts, and my connection to Nature and Spirit, I was able to process these experiences with grace.

Then, as I turned 19, I remembered a sexual abuse trauma that occurred when I was 5. I am proud to say I faced this trauma head on during this time while simultaneously graduating with honors - again, with deep and heartfelt gratitude to my ever-growing healing toolbox.

My journey led me across the world, and to many disciplines and teachers. Today I am a highly sensitive entrepreneur living and working in one of the biggest cities in the world and I feel incredibly blessed to be standing in - and constantly evolving - my most abundant life.

 

I share my experience because it helps you know I’ve lived it.

I understand how it feels to experience and recover from trauma.

I understand the perspectives of both kids and adults as they navigate their healing and make positive changes.

I know that healing is sustainable when we approach it from a whole-self perspective.

I have gained an arsenal of simple and effective tools - and I want to teach them to you.

I am living proof that being highly sensitive and experiencing trauma does not have to stop you from living a deliciously abundant life.
