B.A.G. Box: Tell us a little bit about yourself (name, business, hobbies)
B.A.G. Box: How did you get to where you are today?
I do this work to support people with their pursuit of creating a life of their own design. I do so by applying wisdom gained through self-study, intensive personal development trainings and frankly making a few dozen mistakes along the way. The intention is to help others cultivate success and positive growth in their lives with practical, palatable and simple "tweaks" that create a massive, impactful change in their lives.
In 2018, I began living nomadically as a result of losing my home, after experiencing what some may call an "economic crisis". During this time, I released most of my material possessions, had to leave my home in Long Beach and have found solace in the living rooms, guest rooms and studios of friends, family and mostly members of the loving Yoga community. Without my connection to this sacred practice and the people it has drawn to me, I highly doubt I would have been able to sustain myself physically, mentally and emotionally during this time of what I know to be transformation.
Shortly after that, I was reminded of my "why" and reset myself by focusing on what was gained in the process of transitioning out of my home, instead of being attached to what was lost. Now, I recognize the presence of so much abundance in my life through the practice of grace and gratitude toward myself and others. We all have a journey in this life and I am still on the leveling up portion of mine.
B.A.G. Box: What does your self-care look like?
My self-care looks like spending time alone, I really do enjoy being by myself and appreciate being in my own company. I take walks daily at the start of my day, and also watch silly tv shows from the 80s and old movies from the 50s. Self care for me is the practice of making myself the most important person in my life and treating myself with a gentle mindset, positive self-talk and REST whenever I need it.
B.A.G. Box: What is your favorite crystal?
Right now the crystal that is serving me the most is Selenite. I suffer from migraines and holding a Selenite wand in my hands helps to ease the discomfort. It also is one that I carry with me whenever I am presenting to a large group or socializing with new people; its an excellent buffer from the bullshit.
B.A.G. Box: What is your definition of a Boss Ass Goddess?
My definition of a Boss Ass Goddess is a person who lives unapologetically in a way that causes others to stop and take notice.
B.A.G. Box: What does the phrase collaboration over competition mean to you?
The practice of collaboration offers opportunity to expand our reach, increase our impact and empower others. When we compete with one another, that's rooted in a lack mentality and a belief that there's not enough goodness to go around. In truth, we live in an abundant universe and the practice of collaboration over competition is an example of this awareness of the limitless opportunities that exist for all of us.
