People ask me all the time how in the world I find out about the places I travel to. And, you’ve probably guessed that I typically don’t get my ideas from the Travel Channel...
Growing up in the mountains of North Carolina has been a tremendous influence on my health and happiness. The rain forests, the hiking adventures, and cute barn animals made me realize at a young age that nature can promote quality of life. This inspired me to take a path in healthcare as a medical editor (15+ years' experience), health promotion, and health coaching.
At 35, I received my Bachelor of Science degree in health and wellness promotion from the University of North Carolina and am a current student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Dealing with different kinds of abuse, toxic people, and other struggles throughout my life, my goal is to help others gain a sense of empowerment in order to achieve and sustain the quality of life that they deserve. We must disengage from what's not helping us grow in order to help ourselves engage in what helps us thrive. Allow me to be your guide so you can up your ability.
