If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

I would tell myself to release the fear and trust the process. To build more trust in myself, my decisions, and the outcomes that may follow. Trusting the process and having faith that things will eventually work out in its own time, and everything in life has a time and a purpose. Knowing that I am being divinely guided at all times helps me to release any fears or uncertainties I hold.

What problem does your business solve?

I help working professionals overcome extra blocks and stressors in their life so they can discover their true potential and fast-track their careers without burning out, providing them with a healthy work-life balance and allowing them to spend more time doing the things they love. I guide my clients through the process of creating a vision for their mental health and well-being. Developing a healthy mindset and healthy habits and encouraging them every step of the way until they accomplish their goals.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

My own personal healing journey inspired me to start my business. After suffering from mental, emotional, and even physical traumas in my body, I realized that I had to share my knowledge, my personal experience with burnout, and my healing journey with others who struggled with the same problems.

What is your magic sauce?

I view health and wellness from a holistic perspective. Integrating healing at the level of the mind, body, heart (emotions), and soul. My holistic healing practices treat my client’s full body, mind, and soul as one piece to fix the underlying causes of stress, tension, and anxiety and improve overall wellness.

I also help people understand the impact our emotions and thoughts have on physical well-being. If you regularly experience stress, anxiety, or depression, it’s possible that it’s taking a toll on your body as well as your mind. I support my clients on a journey of healing these negative emotions and in essence helping to support the healing in their physical bodies.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

To launch my wellness center, a place where people can come to heal and learn new practices and tools to set them free from the pain and suffering, they have been holding on to.

I also plan to launch my educational Academy, where I will teach practitioners the tools and practices I have learned. And my method for transforming the mind, body, heart & soul. And in essence, create a ripple healing effect that impacts the collective of humanity.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Launching this business full-time during the start of the pandemic was the biggest challenge I have faced so far. When I decided to pursue the business full-time, I rented a studio room to see my clients. The pandemic hit shortly after, and I was locked out of my room for most of 2020. The pandemic brought with it a set of challenges for the coaching industry. From meeting new needs to finding new ways to connect, it was a time of adjustment and adaptation.

I have decided to move my business completely online to stay in touch and remain accessible to clients during the global pandemic. This decision certainly provides more flexibility and, in the end, a larger audience.

However, I do miss aspects of meeting people in person.
