Our stories are what make us highly capable professionals, compassionate caregivers, enthusiastic change makers, healthy individuals and conscious human beings.
Since I was a little girl I dreamed of building a place where all people felt happy and living in harmony with nature. I was always very concerned with environmental issues and our impact in the future of the planet. That’s why I became an Environmental Engineer. During my 20’s I faced a severe traumatic event that leads me to a big depression. Unwilling to become dependent on anti-depressives, I handled it myself by focusing on my “survival mode” and finding comfort on my “best friend”: nature. In my 30’s, and after years of living what many considered the “perfect life”, I found myself unsatisfied with where my life was heading. I was not creating an impact in the world that I'd dreamed when I was a child. The leap of faith that I took to leave all my life behind led me to India, where I had for my first contact with Ayurveda. It was a mind-blowing experience. I connected all the dots: the importance of food as medicine, the interaction between nature and people, and vice-versa. It all starts and ends with us… This made me realize, that our Western perspective of life, health, people, nature, … was very incomplete and that all our health system perspective has to change in order to become “a life system”. With this realization, I made the promise I would contribute to this change. That’s why I'm here!
After years of dealing with acne, I turned to natural remedies and healthier foods to nurture my body from within, emerging myself in Holistic Health for the first time. After 5 years of learning and going through trial and error, eating disorders, low self-esteem and a whole lot of personal challenges, I realized my power had always been within. By settling the mind, and listening to the body, I regained confidence in the person I was becoming, and today, as a certified Health Coach I want to shed light on mental health and nutrition, as well as empower people in taking the leap and being their own perfectly imperfect self. We’re all a work in progress, but we’re already a masterpiece.
