About Me

Want to know more?

I’ll keep you entertained with these 11 facts:

  1. I am a Jack Of All Trades. For the past 14 years, I have played roles such as deckhand, cook, stewardess, masseuse/yoga instructor, chief stew, crew agent, interior trainer, and now an entrepreneur.

  2. Yachting allowed me to become a certified massage therapist. On my 2nd vessel, the owner wanted a massage therapist onboard, so he paid for my school!

  3. Yoga saved me. For 28 years of my life, I struggled with depression and Gut Health Issues. In 2012 I took a sabbatical year from the maritime industry to heal myself. Diving into the practice of Yoga introduced me to my inner world. Coming back to me was the tool I needed to heal myself. Want the full story, click here.

  4. I power my body with plants. During my healing journey, I tried many diets and found that a plant-based lifestyle was the perfect combination to maintain my health.

  5. Chocolate lover for life. My obsession with chocolate guided me to become a Cacao Ceremonialist. Check it out here.

  6. Water Addict and Travel Junkie. The ocean cleanses me, the river fuels me, and traveling sparks my creativity.

  7. #1 Belly Flopper. I do a minimum of 1 belly flop a day to keep my sense of joy and wonder alive. My inner child loves it, common’ what’s not to love about a belly flop in bed or on top of your lovers’ belly!

  8. When not at work… you can find me climbing a tree or in search of the most orgasmic vegan ice cream in town.

  9. I’m a LOVE, YOUR-SEFL advocate. I breathe and live self-love. Because of my willingness to love myself and practice self-care, I’m living my dream. I have a healthy body and mind, a loving relationship with myself, work-life balance, a supportive partner, and thriving biz that that let’s me be of service to you. That’s why I share every Thursday a self-care practice with the YM tribe. Sign up at the bottom of this page to get your dose of self-care.

  10. I lead by example. During my time as a Chief Stewardess, I learned that I love inspiring others to achieve their dreams and become their best version.
