I am a woman of diverse interestS, education, Expertise, and life experience.
My formal academic education culminated in dual B.A.s in Spanish Language and in Latin American & Iberian Studies from Southern Methodist University and continued immediately thereafter in an epicurean direction, with extensive coursework in cheese + cheese pairing through Molto Formaggio and Scardello Artisan Cheese, and further wine + spirits certification through the Guild of Master Sommeliers. In recent years, I have become a certified NLP Practitioner and certified Hypnotherapist, as well as completing training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Flotation Therapy, and Integrative Wellness + Life Coaching, and becoming a Licensed Ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church.
Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work on multiple levels with a wide variety of people and companies, from major brands like Aston Martin and Equinox Fitness, to disruptive Silicon Beach startups, like CapLinked and Winc, and most recently young PBCs, such as We Journey and The MyIntent Project. I currently offer public classes at The DEN Meditation in Los Angeles, CA, Mystic Journey Yoga + Meditation in Venice, CA, Lit Yoga in Venice, CA, and the soon-to-be-open Soul Hum Studios in Sherman Oaks, CA, as well as offering private services and facilitating flotation therapy at Pause Float Studio in Marina del Rey, CA.
Despite the multitude of my endeavors, I have always had an internal focus on the study and practice of meditation, spiritual attainment, and personal design of my own life experience. I have been teaching meditation and offering wellness and business consulting for the last two years, after a request of instruction by my first student.
I live on the west side of Los Angeles, teach public meditation weekly, read daily, and host meditation retreats internationally.
