I'm a born and bred New Yorker, world traveler and Nature lover. I'm passionate about empowering people just like you to feel incredible and create a life you love!


If you told me five years ago I'd create an online business and live between Los Angeles and Damanhur, a spiritual community in Italy, I wouldn't have believed you. Life is a grand adventure, especially when we live guided by our heart. The beautiful thing about life is that we can be ANYTHING we wish to be and create ANY life we desire. 

My journey in the healing arts began as a medical doctor. Degrees in Psychology, Nutrition, Chemistry and Medicine established my understanding of the human body and psyche, disease, health, life and death. 

By the time I was 25, I touched every continent except Antarctica. I worked with various healers, shamans and medicine people around the globe experiencing and learning about all kinds of healing modalities. Sometimes I found myself in pretty crazy situations, but the stories are well worth it! During this time my abilities as a natural born healer awakened. I discovered I trace back three generations to a lineage of healers from a native tribe in Colombia.

My time spent in foreign lands helped me understand that happiness means different things to different people. Ultimately it's about discovering what happiness means to YOU and living authentically from this place. My work shows you how!


Many life experiences have prepared me for my work as a healer, life guide and Health Coach, including:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, Nutrition and Chemistry from New York University with Honors, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa
