My life was a mess. I had a choice, continue living in ignorance or wake up and live consciously. I started working with a spiritual psychotherapist who introduced me to Buddhism and Reiki. My healing journey had begun.
After completing my degree in Sociology, I returned to school for my Post-Grad in Addiction Counselling. During this time, I started working with N.D. Sat Dharam Kaur introduced me to the world of yoga, specifically Kundalini Yoga.
Yoga started to change my life. My allergies disappeared, digestive issues cleared, and I experienced healing on all levels from this spiritual practice. I had to learn more and pursue my first Yoga Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga.
My thirst for knowledge led me to Peru, where I deepened how Eastern philosophies treat substance misuse.

I grew my family by eight paws and welcomed Luna and Diesel, my husky babies.
I started studying for my Doctorate in Counselling and Psychotherapy program at Yorkville University!
