Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. — Mahatma Gandhi

My entire adult life has been spent in the corporate world as a marketing professional, most recently as a digital marketer. Yes, you read that right – the same sites I’m telling you to step away from to spend more time being in the moment, were the ones that I used to place ads on for clients. I was also a national speaker on social media as well as analytics. I was good at what I did, but in 2016 life changed for me.

It was then that I found myself stressed out in all components of my life. The stress was causing me to have illnesses so I did what any good digital marketer would do…I googled it. To say that I was enlightened and intrigued would be an understatement. I started to try aromatherapy with doTERRA oils, meditation, and breathing exercises. I felt better but still not 100%, so I continued my research and found courses I used to begin educating myself. I became certified as a Life Coach, and that foundation helped me to help myself. I reprioritized the role of my devices (I’m still on them but not like I used to be) and began practicing the art of mindfulness.

I then took a sabbatical for three months and focused on my nutrition and exercise along with the above-mentioned tools and found peace. I have a 9-year-old daughter who is on the autism spectrum, lived through a divorce and I’m a single mom, so I have as much peace as anyone in my position, but my brain is clear, and I feel grounded.

With my new perspective, I decided to start my life coach practice to help others find their greatness (or peace, happiness, or whatever else they have been searching for). It wasn’t long before I realized that wasn’t enough for me. We are in a world where everyone is always on their phone and not experiencing the life that was in front of them. I knew the digital detox program that I created for myself could help others either in a work or personal setting. Last, but far from least, knowing how much stress affected my life and the sad statistic of 75%-90% of illnesses are related to stress, I decided to build a corporate wellness program. This program encompasses both the life coach and digital detox programs with tools for employees to lead healthier lives.

This is not a profession but, a calling and a way of life for me. Together, let’s help you reclaim your life.
