Hi there! I want to share a little bit more about me with you. I know that for me, the more I can get a sense of someone, the more it helps my decision making process when choosing who I want to invite into my life, as a teacher, mentor, therapist, doctor, etc. I thought it only fair to offer that same courtesy and vulnerability to you.
In the photos below, you will travel in time and place with me, from Jamaica, to Hawaii, to Greece, to Nashville, to Seattle. You will also see one of my favorite and most vulnerable photos, the one of me with no hair. This particular photo is from the hair shaving party I had as I started chemo in 2018; thankfully it is a memory now and I have the gift of health. Still this particular photo is near and dear to my heart, as it reminds me of what I can do, the power of friendship, love, and community, and that sometimes we find our bright inner light in the most unexpected of places.
In my experience, the length of our time on this planet is uncertain, so to me healing is truly a gift, not always an easy, pretty, or enjoyable one, but life changing and filled with potential. Since so much in life is already unpredictable, then we add a pandemic on top of it, it becomes even more vital to me that I live my life from a place of joy, compassion, gratitude, kindness, and bliss.
I definitely don't live on a pink cloud, trust me lol, but I do put my best foot forward on a daily basis to not stray too far away from the person I know I am on the inside and the life that has been gifted to me.
I hope this helps you get to know me a little bit more and that you reach out to me if you think we might work well together. It would be my honor to be invited on your journey, to get to know you, and to help you live the life you dream of living.
With Deep Gratitude,
