The key to happiness lies within

our own transformation.


Thank you for visiting! I'm passionate about supporting people in enjoying happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.


Perhaps you'd like to feel better physically, have more energy, enjoy more loving relationships, or be engaged in work that feels more meaningful. As an author and wellness specialist, I offer books and other tools which increase health and well-being and support personal growth.

The butterfly, and its stages of transformation, can be a powerful symbol for our own personal journeys. It reminds us how change can lead to beautiful things, and may even be necessary for living our best life.

A joyful life begins with doing our inner work. The more we increase awareness and grow as individuals, the more we will be able to achieve happiness and satisfaction in our relationships, work and health. There's a ripple effect.

My latest release, A Butterfly Life, is a story about embracing change and includes 4 Keys for more happiness, better health and letting your true self shine. It blends teachings from yoga, Native spiritual wisdom and leading-edge practices in the field of health and wellness to support personal transformation.


Here you'll also find my first book, Journey to One, my latest blog posts, yoga videos and more. I hope you find the books and wellness resources a source of support in your continuing journey.


Wishing you vibrant health and happiness!
