About Me


Soul journey


Life is a gift! Positivity is a mindset.

I'm a holistic health coach that helps women elevate their health and happiness. I love what I do and believe that food is the most powerful medicine available to us.

I obviously love traveling and consider it medicine for the soul. My big travel story synopsis: I spent two years skipping around the world; one year in Deutschland and another creating my own 'Eat, Pray, Love' story around the Balkans, Turkey, India, and S.E. Asia.

Home in NYC now I am planting roots and cultivating good things. When I'm out and about I'm usually hanging out with friends on a rooftop, enjoying healthy food, taking a long bike ride around town, perusing the farmer's market, seeing art, doing yoga, or out somewhere dancing!


"I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it."- Unknown

"The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." G. K. Chesterton

"A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles" Tim Calhill

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Peace. Love. Community.


I visited incredible places, made so many good friends, and shared enough great times to write a book about. I am so grateful for how Couchsurfing shaped my travels and my view of the world.
