1. What is your mission on the planet and how might a reader help you achieve it?
I am here to help people become empowered – to pull their definition of happiness, validation and source of authority inside. We tend to judge ourselves by external standards and as soon as we anchor our barometer inside…asking “What really makes me happy? What do I want my life to look like?”…we’re free! I also want to give people as many tools as possible to navigate this crazy, wild ride of life. To help them understand how to access the power and wisdom in their bodies, intuition and emotions. To help people traverse the terrain of the mind and begin to cultivate dominion over our thoughts to reduce suffering and increase joy. My passion is the integration of eastern yoga and meditation practices with the very best that western neuroscience and psychology has to offer…along with some Priestess magic thrown in.
2. Where does your joy come from?
Love! Spending quality time with my family, friends and loved ones. Also, play. Being in nature. Listening to great music and being inspired by our incredible, creative, spiritual community. And, witnessing my clients be brave, transform and have breakthroughs.
3. How does creativity express itself through you?
I love teaching and creating events that are inspiring, safe and provide a space for people to experience their deepest Selves and truth. A space to increase our understanding of this wild human experience. A space to practice radical acceptance, compassion and unconditional love, to heal and hopefully offer tools that help people strengthen their own source of wisdom and love inside. I also love to write, play with essential oils, read, create art and play with kids.
4. Where on the planet do you come from and how has it contributed to who you are?
The Heartland! Bloomington, Illinois. Incredibly grounded, appreciation for the earth, family and community. My family still farms the land we’ve had for 6 generations.
5. What’s your favorite color and why?
Fuschia. It makes me happy and feels like “me!”
6. How do Hayley Starr dresses make you feel?
I love everything Hayley Starr! Especially Hayley Starr! She is extraordinarily creative, a deep and a true soul sister. We became instant friends as soon as we met. I love the femininity of the dresses and the playfulness. They are flirtatious and fun!
7. What was the most difficult experience you’ve have and what did you learn from it?
I’ve always yearned to be in a long-term, lifelong partnership. Although, I’ve had several outstanding relationships… I’m still searching for my man. I don’t feel as “lonely” when I’m single, anymore…and every time I go through a separation or break up, it draws me so much deeper into my spiritual practice and closer to “God”. I have another quantum leap in understanding what patterns and wounds I’m healing and how to love more unconditionally.
8. If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?
My spirit animal is a Snow Leopard. I’m very feline…..and love the calm, yet ferocity of the leopard.
