Wellness begins within and is attainable for all of us. Your body is meant to heal itself…trust it, learn from it, nourish it and you will see it transform. The best medicines are sunshine, water, clean air, functional fitness, and a nutritionally dense eating plan. Clearing the mind in meditation and breath work keeps you living in the here and now. This moment is truly the only one we have. Live a life of gratitude and you will be given more to be grateful for.
More about me…
I am a twenty year veteran in the field of holistic health care. My passion is working with busy professionals looking to make lasting change in their health and life. I also enjoy working with kids and teach one of the most fun kids yoga classes out there. You can find more info on that here.
A major part of my focus from 2011 and beyond, has been centered around those who have been given a terminal diagnosis. Having survived cancer, I felt called to give back to the community of survivors, their family, friends, and caregivers.
As a busy professional offering specialized support, coaching and guidance to this community can be very stressful and leave you drained and certainly not thinking much about your own health and wellness.
I have felt drained, used food for comfort, believed there weren’t enough hours in my day, questioned my calling/career, and felt like lasting relationships would never happen. I have been where many of you are and I know there is a better way.
The Kindness Journey…
In 2011, I sold nearly everything I owned and started traveling by bicycle. The goal was to visit cancer centers across the United States and eventually the world. I’ve shared my personal story and assisted others all along the way. You can find more information about the Kindness Journey at Unlimited Smileage. This journey has taken me to almost all of the 48 lower states and then back to Pennsylvania where I grew up.
My Path to Wellness…
I’ve always had a passion for all things health and wellness. I spent the first part of my career operating a thriving massage therapy practice with clients from all walks of life. My training includes yoga, meditation, massage therapy, reiki, martial arts, laughter yoga, and health coaching with a focus on nutrition. I also have a background in conventional medicine.
Volunteer work in many different capacities is a large part of my life. I’ve worked with The Livestrong Foundation, OVAC, American Cancer Society, Tamika and Friends, and more. I’ve been featured around the web in places like Inspire Me Today, a Celebration of Women and collaborated on an educational project with Indiana University Health. My volunteer efforts with pediatric cancer patients have been featured on all the major news networks. I was awarded the Lancaster Red Rose Award for outstanding volunteer efforts in the community. My story has been featured on WITF public television as well as Radio Smart Talk-public radio.
Using alternative practitioners for my own healthcare has created an amazing list of resources for your needs that fall outside my scope of practice. True wellness encompasses the whole of who you are.
