Favorite Quote: "We are not primarily put on this earth to see through one another, but to see one another through."- Peter De Vries

Currently Reading: Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed

Favorite Destination: A tie between Italy and Hawaii!

Fun Fact: I danced most of my childhood and into my college years. It was one of the most impactful things in my life, especially modern dance. Every now and then I take a class, t’s like therapy.

I Define Wellness As: Wellness is actively practicing the art of acceptance and peace. Feeling in-line with your physical, mental and emotional health. So many people associate wellness with happiness. I believe it’s deeper than that. It’s the ability to look sadness, anger or worry in the eye with strength and hope.

Something That Brings Me Joy: Seeing my son laugh and traveling to new places.

Why Retreats?:  What started as a love for traveling, wellness and adventure turned into a longing for community. Creating a space where individuals felt seen, heard and inspired; especially those who feel marginalized.

What I Love Most About Hosting Retreats: Creating connections that last a lifetime.




After a sold-out retreat in Colombia (The Mindful Goddess Expedition), I decided to host another one, this time it will be in the states - The Mindful Grounding Retreat in Arizona April 25-28, 2024.

I invite you to embrace this transformative experience, to ground yourself and lay a solid foundation of self-love that will guide you on your journey.
