I began my wellness journey at a young age after experimenting with holistic treatments for health issues. I began practicing yoga at the age of twelve and became certified in Transcendental Meditation that same year. I quickly realized the deep benefits of eating well, practicing yoga, taking homeopathic supplements, and meditating daily. After graduating from Gettysburg College, I moved to New York City to join the corporate world as an event planner, where I have worked for 10 years. My world changed when I suffered a serious concussion in 2017. Despite the medical community’s attempts, my condition worsened with time. I remembered the lessons of my childhood practicing TM and yoga with my mother, took my health into my own hands, and dedicated six weeks to healing with the support of an Integrative Medicine doctor for Cortical Integrative Therapy in Rhode Island. The holistic treatments gave me back my life. I was inspired to dive deeper into why the accident happened and realized my body was screaming for me to slow down. Before the accident, I’d been planning my wedding while working around the clock—and forgetting to check in with my well-being. Through this process, I realized only we have control over the toxins in our lives, by way of our careers, relationships, food, or beauty products. The modern world can be extremely tolling on our bodies, and while we can’t control everything, we have the power to make simple changes that have a lasting impact. I enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and am now a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I also worked at Clean Market as a market specialist to further enhance my knowledge. My mission? To share everything I’ve learned with you, so you can remove toxins from your life to create space for growth.
