The first thing you should know about me is that I’m a genuinely kind, open, loyal, trusting and trustworthy human being. I’m also a highly sensitive, intuitive person. I tend to feel emotions of those around me even more than they’re feeling them at times. The world seems to affect me in a different way than it does most people. I’m an empath. I’m compassionate. And I’m aware. I will absorb the energy of my friends, family and strangers, oftentimes in a visceral way. But, though I’m highly sensitive, I have learned to keep my emotions in check over the years. Just know that if I feel like you need a hug, I’ll give you a big one. So, be prepared, ‘cause I’m a hugger! And I’m most definitely a lover of all people.

MY STORY
Back in early 2013, I chose to leave a full-time marketing career in order to find my own version of happiness and pursue my dream of singing, writing, recording and performing music all over the world. It was crucial for me to take a huge step back to fully reevaluate my life and resurrect the bubbly, positive, outgoing person I was prior to my six years working in corporate America. So, I stopped making excuses as to why a simpler, less stressful existence wasn’t possible. I left my fear-based patterns in the concrete jungle and found ways to make my dreams a reality on a shoestring budget while living in the jungles and on the beaches of Costa Rica. It took me the greater part of eight months to purge my life of things that no longer served me. And I feel so much lighter for it! I’m not just talking about my lighter load of stuff here, but my spirit as well. I feel free.

I have every intention of going back to Costa Rica, but also want to see more of the world while I don’t have much tying me down.

PHILOSOPHY
I wish to leave the world a better place than I found it. I do this by inspiring others to live their passions, not just through my words, but through my actions. I seek to set a good example of someone who doesn't compromise who she is in order to fit in. I rarely fit in, but I'm happier being me than struggling to be someone I'm not.
