From a young age, I realized that I could feel other peoples’ emotions. My parents always used to call me a social genius because they knew I could feel things and make people feel better based on what I was feeling. Whenever they would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would reply: “to love and be loved”. I knew that those were the two most important things but at the time, I didn’t understand what that meant.

To try and find the answer I pursued a degree in psychology at Carleton University. I found myself constantly questioning the curriculum and after four years of study, felt that something was missing. Once I graduated I took a leap of faith and traveled to Bali to become a yoga teacher. The philosophy from my teacher training filled many of the gaps from my undergraduate psychology program and allowed me to understand how to strike a balance between Eastern and Western teachings. When I completed my 800-hour training I was eager to put what I had learned into practice. I moved to Toronto and started my dream job as the General Manager of 889 yoga.

My time at 889 inspired me to become an entrepreneur and after almost four years I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue freelance teaching. The transition from a full-time, stable job environment to the daily grind of a self-sustaining entrepreneur was incredibly tough. To help me through the self-doubt which dominated that period I called upon a healer, Ria Ray. In one of my first sessions with her I realized that my truth is to be an entrepreneur that heals people, so I spent the next three years intensively training with her.

Since then I have stepped away from teaching and have focused on my private healing practice. A day in my life involves meeting with people for one-on-one sessions, investing in real estate and co-creating/collaborating on workshops and events to help awaken the hearts of people in whatever city I’m in.
