If getting along with just about everyone was a super power. I would excel in that category. As a kid, my parents moved from Ireland to the states and for about five years they moved around the country subsequently enrolling me in three schools in one year. Needless to say, I learned how to blend in. But I also became a keen observer of people.
My past was not a straight road into this career. College was challenging for me and when I settled on a business degree with an emphasis in marketing I mostly chose that route because I thought I had to work in corporate America in order to be successful.
And I tried, after college I worked for American Express, Ralph Lauren, I got my real estate license, I worked in telemarketing. My 20’s were a patchwork of dead end jobs because my heart just wasn’t in it.
So, in 2007 I was living in San Diego and I decided to get a pilates certification on the weekends while continuing my office job during the day.

In 2008 I moved to Miami Beach and taught at all of the top level luxury resorts had A-list clients and led festivals in the area.
I added two yoga certifications to my resume. More pilates. Attended the university of Miami coaching program and basically dove into a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.
Teaching yoga, meditation and pilates was enriching. But as my nature has it, I wanted to go deeper. I started practicing meditation around 2010 and really committed to a daily practice by 2014. I added a coaching training in 2016, transitioning from the body to the mind. Combining my years of meditation with coaching for optimal wellness.
Now, please do not think that I am some sort of guru or that I have not had pitfalls. Nor am I saying that meditation is a fix-all. Quite the opposite. I have battled with depression. I froze my eggs when I was 40 and felt totally alone. I have spent a week at a meditation retreat only to come home to continue my bad habits again and again!
But I never gave up. My inner compass kept asking me to meditate and I did. Today I am happily married to a super duper nice guy, I got pregnant naturally at 44. I created wrote and published an oracle deck, The pregnancy deck. I continue to lead online meditation trainings and sessions. Because I believe that we deserve to be happy and meditation is a powerful tool to help us get there. Want to go deeper? Combine coaching with action steps.
Which leads me to you.
